Actor Manoj Bajpayee has opted to play the villain in the Hrithik Roshan-led Indian remake of the British limited series, night manager. He was originally supposed to play Richard Roper, played by Hugh Laurie – an arms dealer who disguises himself to be a business tycoon.
According to a daily, Manoj Bajpayee was in advanced talks with the makers for the series, but due to the second wave of the pandemic, two of his productions got delayed. As a result, he realized that he would not be able to match his dates with the rest of the starcast, and decided to exit the venture. The actor is currently shooting for a film in Uttarakhand and will focus on his pending projects after the shooting of the film.
While Hrithik Roshan has been roped in to play the role of Jonathan Pine in the show, the makers are looking for a new replacement for Manoj Bajpayee’s character.
night manager is a British television serial directed by Susan Beers and starring Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman, David Harewood, Tom Hollander and Elizabeth Debicki. The series originally premiered on BBC One on February 21, 2016.
