If the recent reports are to believed, Tabu and Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishaan Khatter will be starring in Mira Nair's next directorial venture which will be an adaptation of Vikram Seth's A Suitable Boy. The film also stars Tanya Maniktala who will be playing the protagonist in the film. It is said that the project will go on the floors from next month.

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, "Having worked with Mira previously in The Namesake, I am looking forward to another creatively challenged experience."

Talking about the movie, the report also says, the novel is about a spirited university where a student Lata (played by Tanya Maniktala, earlier seen in the TV series Flames), coming of age in North India in 1951, at the time when the country is going to the polls for its first democratic general elections. While her mother is determined to find her a husband, Lata embarks on her own journey of love and self-discovery. 

Connected to her through their siblings’ marriage, the wayward Maan Kapoor (played by Ishaan) is determined to enjoy life to the fullest whatever be the consequences, much to the concern of his politician father. He is infatuated by the beautiful courtesan Saaeda Bai (played by Tabu) and the trio’s stories play out during a tumultuous period in India’s history, reflect the wider conflict between tradition and modernity.
