Ishaan Khatter to become ‘A Suitable Boy’
There is a good news for fans of actor Ishaan Khatter who went on Europe tour with brother Shahid Kapoor recently. Ishaan will soon be seen in BBC series A Suitable Boy.
This series, which tells the story of four families after the India-Pakistan partition, is based on Vikram Seth’s novel of the same name. This series will be directed by Mira Nair.
Tabu will also be an important part of the series. Tabu has also previously worked in The Namesake, directed by Mira Nair. In this series, she will play Saeeda Bai, while Ishaan will play the role of Maan Kapoor, the stubborn son of a politician.
Ishaan is very happy working with Mira Nair. He says that he will try his best to live up to his expectation. The big challenge for Ishaan will be to play the character of Mann Kapoor properly in front of an international audience.
Apart from Tabu and Ishaan, the series will also feature debutant actress Tanya Maniktala. Shooting will be done in the palaces and villages of North India. This six-part series will air till June next year.

Elated to announce that I’ll be playing Maan Kapoor in @pagliji ’s and @bbcone ‘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.
