The series to be produced by Preity will be directed by writer-turned-director Sandeep Modi who has been associated with Ram Madhavani during the making of Neerja and the web-series Aarya.
A source informed an entertainment website, “Preity thought of her friend Duggu (Hrithik) because he was perfect for the role. She is producing an Indian version of the celebrated John Le Carre novel The Night Manager. The lead requires the character to be complex and multi-layered. Hrithik immediately said yes.”
The Night Manager will see him playing the role of a luxury hotel night manager and former Indian soldier who is recruited by a government agent to infiltrate the inner circle of a ruthless arms dealer.
