The first trailer for BBC One’s A Suitable Boy TV adaptation, directed by Mira Nair, has been released. The series is based on the novel by Vikram Seth, and stars Ishaan Khatter, Tabu, Ram Kapoor, Tanya Maniktala and Rasika Dugal, among others.
The one-minute trailer features several romantic scenes involving Ishaan and Tabu’s characters.
The trailer gives us a sneak peek of Maan Kapoor (played by Ishaan Khatter) and courtesan Saeeda Bai's (Tabu) forbidden romance, which is frowned upon by the society, especially Maan's father Mahesh (Ram Kapoor) - the Kapoor patriarch.
Ishaan and Tabu, blinded by love, become indifferent to the society's opinion of them. The duo's crackling chemistry is the highlight of the trailer.
Sharing the trailer on Instagram, Ishaan Khatter wrote, "A first sneak peak into the world of #ASuitableBoy @bbc: Love will push you beyond your boundaries. Based on the best-selling novel, A Suitable Boy starts 26th July on BBC One and @BBCiPlayer. "
This is Ishaan Khatter's first collaboration with the acclaimed filmmaker. Tabu has earlier worked with Mira Nair in the 2006 film The Namesake that also starred late actor Irrfan Khan.
