Anil Kapoor, on Friday, launched the trailer of his upcoming show, ‘The Night Manager’ in Alibaug. It stars the actor with Aditya Roy Kapur and Shobita Dhulipala. The show, which is the Indian adaptation of a British series, is set in the backdrop of illegal arms deals. It will stream on Disney+ Hotstar from February 17, and will have Anil and Aditya pitted against each other.
During the trailer launch event, the veteran actor mentioned how after having decades of experience in the industry, he feels only hard work cannot guarantee success.
"The first thing is that it should make me nervous and feel that I can't do this, I've not done something like this before. And then I think about how I want to give my best, because without doing my best (on-screen) otherwise how will I show my face to my friends. Will directors offer me work after seeing this or will I stop getting work altogether. I always have this nervousness and anxiety and hunger (to do good work) all the time and it pushes me," Indian Express quoted him saying.
He added that it is now more difficult to impress the audience. "After working for so many years it has become very, very tricky, what should I do, what have I done that people have not already seen me do. It is very tough and every day it is becoming tougher to excite the audience with so much stuff happening around. One needs blessings, only hard work doesn't (make the cut) anymore. The right people have to come together to make something remarkable today,” he added.
He was last seen in ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’ alongside Neetu Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani. He now has Ranbir Kapoor's ‘Animal’ and ‘Fighter’, alongside Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone as his upcoming projects.
