The Night Manager is the Indian adaptation of the British thriller series of the same name, which itself is based on a book by John le Carre, and aired on BBC One in 2016.
The Hindi version is created by Sandeep Modi, and stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Anil Kapoor, Sobhita Dhulipala, Tillotama Shome and Saswata Chatterjee among others. It's available on Disney+ Hotstar.
The show when first released in February this year took the internet by storm. The original six-episode British version was released as a complete series, but the Indian producers decided to split the programme into two parts and space them apart by four months.

The Night Manager 2 trailer
The trailer of Part 2 slightly pushes the envelope in uncovering Shaan's (Aditya Roy Kapur) agenda against Shelly (Anil Kapoor). In the trailer, Shelly is heard saying, “Humare ghar mein deemak lag gaye hain. Unhe samay se hatana padega nahi toh poore ghar ko aag lagani padegi” (There are termites in our home. We'll have to get rid of them soon or we'll be forced to put the whole house on fire").
