A Suitable Boy is a celluloid adaptation of Vikram Seth’s acclaimed bestselling novel of the same name. The series is set in newly-independent India and interweaves the stories of four families - the Mehras, the Kapoors, the Chatterjis and the Khans.
Apart from Ishaan, Tabu and Ram, A Suitable Boy features newcomer Tanya Maniktala, Rasika Dugal, Shahana Goswami, Namit Das, Gagan Dev Riar, Danesh Razvi, Mikhail Sen, Vivek Gomber and Mahira Kakkar.
Earlier, talking about her role, Tabu said she is looking forward to another "creatively charged experience" with the filmmaker. She told news agency IANS: "I'm very happy to be working on A Suitable Boy and especially with Mira. Having worked with her on The Namesake, I look forward to one more creatively charged experience."
Talking about the film, Ishaan Khatter earlier said it's an honour for him to work with Nair. "It's not only my pleasure but an honour to be working on this illustrious material alongside such distinguished artistes and technicians led by the indomitable Mira Nair. I hope I can satisfy her vision and give the global audience the character they deserve in Maan Kapoor," he said.
Produced by Lookout Point for the BBC, the drama is penned by British screenwriter Andrew Davies. A Suitable Boy is scheduled to premiere in June 2020.
