Dhanush is all praise for the performances and plot of `The Night Manager`


Actor Dhanush took to his Twitter feed and applauded the “strong performances” and “captivating plot” of `The night manager‘, saying it kept him “hooked to the end”

Actress Tillotoma Shome, who played a pivotal role in the show, replied to the superstar’s tweet saying, “Thanks for the shout out Dhanush!!”

The web series is a Hindi adaptation of John le Carré’s novel ‘The Night Manager’. Created and directed by Sandeep Modi, the show features Anil Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Tillotama Shome, Saswata Chatterjee, Ravi Behl and others.

Recently, Sandeep Modi revealed that Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor has named his character in the web series himself. Anil plays the role of Shelly Rungta, a central character in the story.

Anil is an antagonist in the series and he plays a character different from his previous ones. As an actor, he explores his gray side in the show and seems to do justice to his character as a gambler and ruthless businessman. He shared that there was originally another name for his character, but he suggested this specific one.

Talking about the series, Aditya had previously said, “When there is revenge and betrayal in the mix, high voltage drama is inevitable. The Night Manager does this on the back of fascinatingly complex characters. As they say, still waters run deep, and my character Shaan embodies that phrase very well. You never know what he’s thinking about, but you know the wheels are spinning at lightning speed, taking the plot from one unexpected twist to the next. It has been an amazing experience working with some of the best talent in the Indian film industry, curated by the dynamic team at Disney+ Hotstar.”

“We cast Anil Kapoor as Shelly Rungta. By the way, the name Rungta came from him. It was called something else before,” said Sandeep.

Sandeep, known for ‘Aarya’, ‘The Lottery’ and ‘Neerja’ added how the ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’ actor came up with another option.

“He gave the surname Rungta. He thought it should be a very Indian surname, not very generic. Something that has power. Rungta is basically a marwari businessman with charm and everything,” he concluded.

The show will be streamed on Disney+ Hotstar.
