The much-awaited trailer of Tabu and Ishaan Khatter starrer A Suitable Boy is finally out.
The story is about Lata Mehra, a 19-year-old girl studying at a university. Her mother tries to convince her to get married to a ‘suitable boy’. How the girl meets the prospective grooms and struggles to analyse her feelings are what take the story further. A parallel story features Ishaan playing the role of Maan Kapoor who falls in love with a courtesan named Saeeda Bai, played by Tabu.
A Suitable Boy is the TV adaptation of Vikram Seth’s book of the same name. The book tells the stories of four families in the post-Partition era.
Apart from Tabu and Ishaan, A Suitable Boy also stars Tanya Maniktala, Rasika Dugal, Savita Kapoor, Randeep Hooda, Shefali Shah, Ram Kapoor and Shahana Goswami, among others, playing pivotal roles.
Directed by Mira Nair, the film has been made as a six-part series for BBC and the first part will start streaming from July 26.
