The upcoming series is an Indian adaptation of the British TV series starring Tom Hiddleston and based on John Le Carre‘s spy thriller. Dropping the first trailer of the upcoming series, Anil wrote in a social media post, “A dreaded arms dealer, a night manager and a dangerous game of love and betrayal – it’s showtime!”
The series will see Anil playing the role of an arms dealer while Aditya plays an undercover operative. Throwing some light on his character Shaan and his role in the upcoming web Disney+ Hotstar series, Aditya said, “When I saw the original show, what struck me was the journey the character goes through. He is someone who first doesn’t want to get involved, but then due to a certain twist of fate, he feels compelled to. The show then goes on to see him go through all the trials and tribulations he faces.”
He also shared his excitement about being a part of the show, and said, “It’s a dream part for an actor to have a character that has so many shades to it. Another thing that attracted me to the project was the tone of the show, it isn’t necessarily something that I’ve gotten a chance to explore in Hindi cinema so far.”
He added, “It feels tonally unique and that’s one of the beauties of the show. In that sense, I was really excited at the chance of doing something different or something that one might have not necessarily done before this.”
Created and directed by Sandeep Modi, the show that also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Tillotama Shome, Saswata Chatterjee and Ravi Behl, is slated to release on 17 February.
