Yesterday we brought you the news that Ishaan Khatter is all set to feature in Mira Nair’s adaptation of A Suitable Boy. Today, the young actor took to Instagram and confirmed the news with a post of the cast and director.

Ishaan tagged Tabu and Tanya Maniktala in this post and wrote:

“Elated to announce that I’ll be playing Maan Kapoor in Mira Nair’s and BBC One’s official adaptation of Vikram Seth’s ‘A Suitable Boy’. It’s not only my pleasure but an honour to be working on this illustrious material alongside such distinguished artists 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,”

While talking to a leading daily, Ishaan said,

“I hope I can satisfy Mira’s vision and give the global audience the character they deserve in Maan Kapoor (his character)”

Tabu was also quoted saying,

“Having worked with Mira previously in The Namesake, I am looking forward to another creatively challenged experience.”

Ishaan Khatter will essay the role of Maan Kapoor while Tabu will play Saaeda Bai, a courtesan. Television actress Tanya Maniktala has been roped in to play the protagonist Lata.

The film is a coming of age story of Lata, a girl whose mother wants to find a suitable husband for her. She is connected with Maan Kapoor through their sibling’s marriage. While he is the son of a politician, he wants to live his life to the fullest. He is infatuated by Saeeda Bai and this is how the trio’s stories progress during the most difficult time in the history of India.

The project will go on floor next month and will be shot across North India at locations like Lucknow and Maheshwar.

On the work front, Tabu will soon be seen in Jawaani Jaaneman opposite Saif Ali Khan.
