Tabu is an amazing actress who has been impressing us with her acting chops for over two decades. Ishaan Khatter, who entered the filmy world with Beyond The Clouds, left a lasting impression on all in Dhadak.
Now we hear, Tabu and Ishaan are all set to come together on the silver screen. This project will be the adaptation of A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth. Directed by Mira Nair, the film is yet to get a title. It is written by Andrew Davies.
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, but she embarks on a journey of love and self-discovery. She is connected with Maan Kapoor through their siblings’ marriage.
While he is the son of a politician, he wants to live his life to the fullest. He is infatuated by Saaeda 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.
Tabu is also a part of Jawaani Jaaneman which stars Saif Ali Khan as Amar Khanna. The film also marks the debut of Alaia Furniturewala as Gauri Khanna.
It’s interesting to see Tabu and Ishaan working together for such a unique concept.
