The Hindi adaptation of The Night Manager features an outstanding performance from Aditya Roy Kapur. The actor just agreed to portray two roles in Gumraah, a movie he committed to making over three years ago, before the Covid-19 pandemic struck.
The actor discusses the success and failure he has had in his 14-year career in the Hindi film industry, as well as the fail-safes he has in place to prevent being duped as an actor working in Bollywood.

I would probably like to work more because I’m not always very productive during such pauses.
