Aditya Roy Kapur recently attended the press conference of ‘The Night Manager’ in Mumbai. During the event, he was asked about his contemporary, actor Kartik Aryan starring in ‘Aashiqui 3’, which will be helmed by Anurag Basu. It is also being said that Fatima Sana Sheikh will co-star with Kartik in the third film of the franchise.
When asked about the same, Aditya quipped, “Kartik and Fatima, is it? I mean when I first heard of it people asked me if I wanted to be a part of it. In the second film, I took a long swim, so I don’t think my character can return for a sequel. I think the team that they are putting together, from what we are hearing, is a great team. And I am really looking forward to it as a film watcher to see what they do with the next part. I am sure they’ll do a great job.”
Aditya, meanwhile, has got all the love for his portrayal of Shaan in the Sandeep Modi directorial. Asked where he places this show on his career, Aditya said, “We’ll see what it does. It is definitely something I am very very proud of. I think something like this doesn’t come around very often where everything connects the dots. The response that the show has got is overwhelming.”
“I think to find out what it’s done you have to look into the future. But for me this is definitely one of the milestones as far as my career is concerned,” he added.
Lastly, he talked about sharing screen space with Anil Kapoor in ‘The Night Manager’ and said, “The only flip side is that you get a complex that you don’t work hard enough because Anil sir is definitely the hardest person working in the room, I think that’s the only con. I am fortunate enough to have gotten the opportunity to work with him on a second project and he never ceases to amaze you. You’ve probably heard it before, but it is all true. The zeal with which he comes to work, the passion with which he approaches his role, his attention to detail, he wants everyone to succeed so the whole thing succeeds. Sir’s experience has been valuable in this project.”
‘The Night Manager part 2’ would be streaming on Disney+ Hotstar from June 30.
