According to a recent report, Sobhita Dhulipala will be portraying this character in the upcoming Hindi remake of the Golden Globe Award-winning series - The Night Manager.

Award-winning British series The Night Manager is getting a Hindi remake, which will feature Aditya Roy Kapur stepping into the shoes of Tom Hiddleston, who played the tormented lead character Jonathan Pine.

Talking about Sobhita’s casting in the series, Pinkvilla quoted the source close to the development of the remake, “In-fact, the actress was in conversations with the team even when Hrithik Roshan was in the conversations to do the series. While the casting of men has taken a turn, the actress continues to spearhead the show as the female lead.”

Sobhita has worked in the critically-acclaimed 2019 web-series Made In Heaven which streams on Amazon Prime.
