Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan was set to make his debut on the small screen with a Hindi adaption of Tom Hiddleston’s The Night Manager. Disney Plus Hotstar had approached Hrithik presenting him with a remake of the British mini-series last year in September. The star was supposed to begin shooting in March. According to reports, the actor has allegedly backed out of the series. Various sources suggested how the cast and crew of the series weren’t happy with the developments and the filming is now on halt.

Although there hasn’t been any official confirmation yet, several sources state that Hrithik was uncomfortable with the show’s long work hours and had difficulty adjusting with the date scheduled. Reportedly, the crew is also not satisfied with the latest developments and the production of the series remains canceled. Hrithik who was supposed to play Jonathan Pine, the character from John Le Carre’s classic novel, had been looking to venture into the online space for a long time. The star was also offered Rs. 75 crore for his role in the spy drama.

Last year, Hrithik was offered two big banner web projects. While one was the espionage drama The Night Manager, the other show was the 1983 BBC miniseries, The Citadel, starring Ben Cross. Hrithik had to have opted for the former and had planned two months starting April for his debut web series, after working on the dates. However, it seems like the actor allegedly back out of the project and fans would not be seeing him in Hiddleston’s role.
