Ishaan Khattar recently starred alongside Tabu in the BBC series titled A Suitable Boy. The show is based upon a critically acclaimed book by the same name. Vikram Seth’s A Suitable Boy stars Tabu and Ishan Khattar in the lead roles. Ishan has now revealed that he was incredibly excited to work with Tabu as she is a phenomenal actress. Ishan also said that it was an incredibly exciting opportunity for him as he is still a fairly young actor.
In an interview with IANS Ishan said, “I knew early on that she could be a part of 'A Suitable Boy'. Mira (Nair) ma'm had told me that it would be Tabu playing the role of Saeeda bai, and she would love to have me play Mann.”
"I was looking forward to meeting her," he added. He further said, "The first time I met her I felt reassured it would be a special experience working with Tabu because she is not only a fantastic actor and an incredibly gifted performer, but also so easy to have a conversation with."
Ishan further recalled saying, “by the time we had done a few readings, when we went on set together, there was a certain synergy between us that made it very easy to work with".
"This was my first time working with her and I would imagine she is like this in general. She is probably one of the easiest co-actors to work with. Working with her was definitely one of my favourite experiences,” he added.
