In The Night Manager, Aditya Roy Kapur played a hotel night manager who goes undercover to bring down the empire of an arms dealer, essayed by Anil Kapoor. The Indian version has been created by Sandeep Modi with a screenplay by Shridhar Raghavan. Modi also directed the seven-part series with Priyanka Ghose. What made the show's success even sweeter for him was the appreciation that came from the fans of the 2016 British series, which featured Hiddleston as Jonathan Pine.

"There are so many people who love the original. Some people have said that The Night Manager original is my favourite show. But even those people have actually turned around and said that they liked us as much. "That is a great compliment to receive... It is a kind of vindication for feeling like it was a good thing that we went ahead and did this." The actor even got a call from Hiddleston, his British counterpart. British show writer David Farr and Hiddleston attended a special screening of the Indian version in London and then the Loki star rang up Kapur.
