One of the most anticipated Hindi remakes, The Night Manager, was reportedly going to star Hrithik Roshan. The official Hindi version of the hugely successful British spy thriller series starring Tom Hiddleston has been in the works for the past few years. The pandemic caused the first delay, and then there were reports that Hrithik Roshan would no longer be involved, further delaying the adaptation.

Although Aditya Roy Kapur has been cast in the Hindi version, according to current news reports, actor Ali Fazal was previously slated to play this role. However, Ali had to turn down the assignment due to his shooting schedule for his Hollywood movie starring Gerard Butler and season 3 of Mirzapur.

According to a source, Ali was contacted soon after Hrithik was unable to complete the job. The team was trying to create the ideal schedule to guarantee that the project would start on time, but it kept getting hung up on dates. Ali eventually had to drop the remake of The Night Manager since he was already committed to working on Vishal Bhardwaj's Khufiya and season 3 of Mirzapur.

It's interesting to note that Ali will appear as an intelligence officer in Vishal Bhardwaj's upcoming film and will also appear in the fast-paced action drama Kandahar.

The actor has adopted the strategy of mastering the fundamentals of wrestling to use the ways of combat and hand-to-hand combat to apply the skills for his part in Mirzapur Season 3. The premise of the show has always included action, but this time around, the screenplay calls for far more of it. Ali wants to use this time and this preparation to apply to certain parts of the show because he wants to perform his action and stunts for the part.

The action scenes in the upcoming season's script are now being prepared by Ali Fazal. He has been practising for a few weeks in preparation for the upcoming shoot, and the training is currently in progress. Ali Fazal is working extremely hard on this part and has already begun learning the fundamentals of wrestling.
