Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan is soon going to start shooting for the Indian adaptation of John Le Carre’s spy drama The Night Manager.

The actor will play an Indian version of the Jonathan Pine character, who was played by Tom Hiddleston in the 2016 adaptation, which aired on the BBC and AMC, and was produced by The Ink Factory, reported Variety.

The upcoming Indian adaptation, which is scheduled to go into production in April and will be shot in Mumbai, is being produced by Banijay Asia. Some international locations will follow after travel becomes easier.

Executives close to the deal told the publication that an official announcement is imminent. Although not confirmed yet, the Indian version of the spy drama is likely to premiere on Indian streamer Disney Plus Hotstar.

Sandeep Modi, who co-created and co-directed the popular Hotstar series Aarya, will be helming the upcoming Indian adaptation.

The Night Manager is a 1993 novel by British author John Le Carre, who passed away in December 2020. The story revolves around the night manager of a luxury hotel, a former soldier, who is recruited by a government espionage organisation, to infiltrate the inner circle of an arms dealer.
