About Anil and Aditya’s character
As a weapons dealer who poses as a business tycoon, Anil Kapoor will be seen in the series. The public will perceive Aditya as a former soldier and the night manager of a five-star hotel. Taking over for Olivia Colman's role as Angela Burr, the recruiter for the main character Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston), Sobhita Dhulipala is now playing the role.
Aditya Roy Kapur expresses his excitement about the show
Aditya says, “Both the series and Tom Hiddleston are my favourites. The part is challenging and exciting, and the show is brilliantly crafted. For me, getting to go right in and take on that position is a fantastic opportunity. It was crucial for me to enter the role on my own, especially after how beautifully Tom performed it. Giving an already done section your own direction and identity is difficult when doing something that has been done before. I think that's what we've accomplished here.”
