Ishaan Khatter is excited to share screen space with Tabu in A Suitable Boy. The actor plays the character of Maan Kapoor, a young man from an affluent family who is infatuated with a courtesan, Saeeda Bai, played by Tabu.

Talking to an entertainment portal, Ishaan Khatter revealed that it was daunting to romance Tabu on screen. He added that what he realised was that he seeks out challenging experiences that would give him an opportunity to grow. He could not think of a better experience than having a one-to-one equation and a working relationship with one of her favourite actresses of cinema. So, he thinks his tendency is to get much more excited than nervous.

Ishaan Khatter went on to reveal that things worked out really well from the very first reading he had with Tabu and Mira. He said that it felt wonderful and very right. He felt that this was what he should be doing. It felt like there was a wonderful synergy between all three of them. The actor said that he felt lucky because not many actors his age can say they get an opportunity to share so much screen time in such a unique way with one of the legends of our time.

Produced by Lookout Point for BBC One, the six-episode series also stars newcomer Tanya Maniktala, Rasika Dugal, Ram Kapoor, Shahana Goswami, Namit Das, among others.
