Aditya Roy Kapur, who is playing one of the male protagonists in the upcoming web series titled The Night Manager, shared that he had to work extensively to achieve the look and physique of the character Shaan on the show. The work was to not look buff. 

Shaan has an interesting transformation professionally as well as in his personal life throughout the series. He started his journey with The Night Manager in Dhaka, then he moved to Shimla, followed by Sri Lanka. Aditya’s character goes through a lot in the series. 

Talking about his fitness and look, the actor said, “I had to really work hard on my physique and not look buff. There was obviously a physicality involved and this role demanded it as well.” 

He said that he went through a physical transformation according to the demand of the character but at the same time, he also had to make sure not to overdo it. To achieve the look, the actor went through a special diet and had to stay consistent with everything. 

Aditya shared, “Eating clean and training hard kind of got tough at one point because there were portions that I had to shoot where we were putting long hours and trying to keep the body and the diet going along with that shoot.” He further added that it was a taxing process but that too was part of his job. 

The show is created and directed by Sandeep Modi. It is co-directed by Priyanka Roy and produced by The Ink Factory and Banijay Asia. The Night Manager is a Hindi adaptation of the John le Carre’s novel of the same title. The series has been written by Sridhar Raghavan who earlier penned some of the biggest blockbusters of Bollywood like WAR and Tiger Zinda Hai franchise. 

The Night Manager also stars Anil Kapoor, Sobhita Dhulipala, Tillotama Shome, Saswata Chatterjee and Ravi Behl, among others. It is all set to release on Disney Plus Hotstar on February 17.
