In this pandemic age, web series are all the rage, therefore attracting many big names to the world of streaming services. The latest name in this trend is that of Hrithik Roshan.
Hrithik Roshan will be seen in the Indian adaptation of The Night Manager. Disney+Hotstar has decided to officially remake the series in Hindi in which Hrithik Roshan will play the role of Jonathan Pine, the part played by Tom Hiddleston. The critically-acclaimed show is the adaptation of the book ‘The Night Manager’ released in 1993.
Reportedly, Manoj Bajpayee was approached to play the role of Hugh Laurie. But according to sources, the talks did not pan out and he had to walk out of the series.
Due to covid restrictions and production dates being pushed forward, Manoj’s already signed projects have been pushed forward and he has to complete his signed projects first. So the lack of availability of dates led to his bowing out of the project.
But the fans can still see him playing an intelligence officer in the second season of The Family Man 2 which is about to drop on the 4th of June and he also has some other projects lined up to entertain the masses. The shooting for The Night Manager is expected to start by the end of the year and will also star the actor from the web series ‘Aarya’, Sandeep Modi.
So it looks like we will have to wait at least a year to see Hrithik Roshan play the role of Jonathan Pine but we can rest assured that it will be worth the wait and keep our fingers crossed for any future projects in which we can watch these two amazing actors together.
