Ishaan Khatter along with Tabu and Mira Nair start the shoot of 'A Suitable Boy'

Ace Bollywood director, Meera Nair is all set to start the shoot of her series which is an adaptation of Vikram Seth’s critically acclaimed novel, A Suitable Boy.

This is going to be a six series part and has been modified by screenwriter Andrew Davies, who is famous for his films like Pride and Prejudice and War and Peace.

Filmmakers, Meera Nair, Andrew Davies, and Vikram Seth met recently for the script rehearsals. They also met Ishaan Khatter, Tabu, and Maniktala for the final script reading.

Nair during an interview said, The talent in the room sizzled: Vikram Seth, author of the masterpiece that I have loved since the day it was written, Andrew Davies, the great craftsman of the distillation of epic stories into screenplays, cutting-edge actors, first-timers and legends from across the subcontinent, all coming together to make a human, funny, political, sexy chronicle of India.


BBC One took to their social media handle and informed about this great piece of news. Sharing the post, they captioned it asDirector Mira Nair, screenwriter Andrew Davies, and author Vikram Seth recently gathered in Mumbai for a very special read-through with the all-Indian cast of #ASuitableBoy, including @tabutiful@ishaankhatter and @tanyamaniktala. Filming starts on Sat for this epic coming-of-age story, set in North India, 1951. 📸 Aradhana Seth

A Suitable Boy narrates the story of a high spirited university student named Lata. She hails from North India and the time dates back to 1951, the same time when the nation is in the process of making its own identity as an independent nation. During this time, the first democratic elections of the country are about to happen.

Some time ago, Ishaan had informed about getting the role of Maan Kapoor in the adaptive series. He had said, 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 honor 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.
