Aditya Roy Kapur, who played the lead role in the Indian adaptation of night manager, Today I am in seventh heaven. Cause?

After the screening, the Loki actor greeted his Indian counterpart over a video call and went about his day. Aditya, who plays Shaan Sengupta in the series, uploaded two pictures of himself talking to Tom Hiddleston over a video call and wrote: “The OG Night Manager watched our show yesterday! He had some kind words to say. Bas aur kya chahiye (what else do I want now).” Recently released directors night manager, Priyanka Ghosh and Sandeep Modi were also present at the UK screening of the show.
