Indian adaptation of The Night Manager to release on Disney+Hotstar
The Indian adaptation of The Night Manager is creating history! The show, which is set to release on Disney+ Hotstar on 17th February 2023, is an adaptation of John le Carré’s book with the same name and in a first, the book will now feature the film’s leading men, Anil Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur, as its cover. This is the first time ever that an Indian show will be featuring on an international bestseller.
Gaurav Banerjee, Head - Content, Disney+Hotstar & HSM Entertainment Network, Disney Star said, “John le Carre is the king of espionage. Our show 'The Night Manager' is based on his book and now it is being featured on the book cover which is seeming like a fantastic full circle of the show's journey! It's such a strong validation of what we have done with the Indian version and we couldn't have been more thrilled.”
Nick, Stephen and Simon Cornwell, sons of the author, said “Our father John le Carré was hugely excited by the Indian adaptation of The Night Manager. Even though sadly he did not live to see the finished show, we know he would have been thrilled by this breath-taking adaptation brilliantly helmed by Sandeep Modi and Priyanka Ghose and the brilliant performances of Anil Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Tillotama Shome, Sobhita Dhulipala and the whole cast. It’s a gripping and much-loved book and it’s wonderful to see it taking on new life in this way. Moments like these prove how well the story has traveled, and how it has echoed across the globe. And it’s incredibly exciting to see two of Bollywood’s greatest actors, Anil Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur, on the cover of the book!"
“Night Manager is John Le Carré’s best-known work of espionage writing. This is a moment of absolute joy for us to witness an international book of such renown being made into an Indian OTT show. We hope this endeavor spreads the thrill of reading Mr. Carré’s works amongst a wider audience set.” Manoj Satti, Group Vice President – International Product & Marketing, Penguin Random House India
