The much-awaited trailer of A Suitable Boy is now out. The Mira Nair present, tailored from Vikram Seth’s much-feted novel of the identical identify, casts Ishaan as Maan Kapoor, the rebellious son of politician Mahesh Kapoor (performed by Ram Kapoor). Maan develops an attraction for the gorgeous courtesan Saaeda Bai (essayed by Tabu). “A first sneak peak into the world of #ASuitableBoy @bbc: Love will push you beyond your boundaries. Based on the best-selling novel, A Suitable Boy starts 26th July on BBC One and @BBCiPlayer,” Ishaan captioned the video.
Expressing his pleasure in regards to the challenge, Ishaan mentioned: “‘A Suitable Boy’ has been an enriching experience and I’m ever so excited for people to see it. Maan is one of the most interesting characters I’ve read and portraying him on screen has been a delight.”
In an earlier interview with IANS, Ishaan Khatter mentioned it was simple to romance Tabu in the movie: “Because that person is Tabu, it really does half the job for you. I have said this before and I have said this in ‘Dhadak’ as well, it is always easy for me to play the besotted lover. Because she’s mesmerising, she is and especially in this character. I am really excited for people to see Saaeda Bai.” He has a nickname for Tabu as properly. “It is Tabasco! Tabasco for Tabassum. I came up with it. She’s mirchi!” he mentioned.
What would Ishaan prefer to reward Tabu? “My heart! I would like to gift her. I think I am very much in possession of my heart. I would gift her a book of Ghalib’s poetry,” Ishaan replied.
The screenplay of the movie has been penned down by Andrew Davies. The movie will probably be a BBC-backed series having six one-hour episodes co-starring actors like Rasika Dugal, Vivaan Shah, Tanya Maniktala and Shefali Shah amongst others in essential roles.
