If reports are to be believed, Ishaan Khatter has been roped in to play the lead opposite Tabu in Mira Nair’s A Suitable Boy. The two will be joined by newcomer Tanya Maniktala who will play an important part.
While talking to Mumbai Mirror, 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, “I’m very happy to be working on ‘A Suitable Boy’, and especially with Mira. Having worked with Mira previously in The Namesake, I am looking forward to another creatively challenged experience.”
A Suitable Boy is the story of Lata, a spirited university student in North India in 1951 just when the country is going through the polls for its first-ever democratic general elections.
While newcomer Tanya will be seen as Lata, Ishaan will play the role of Maan who loves to enjoy life to the fullest and is infatuated with courtesan Saaeda Bai, played by Tabu.
The film will go on floors next month and will be entirely shot in places like Lucknow and Maheshwar.
