Ishaan Khatter is surely one young actor who has worked with some of the finest filmmakers in the world. Which other actor can brag about working with Majid Majidi and even Mira Nair in a span of two years. Ishaan is super kicked about his next outing A Suitable Boy, an adaptation of a classic novel by Vikram Seth.
Speaking to a leading daily, Ishaan Khatter talks about the film saying, “One has to be free in their creative expression. Within the narrative itself, it’s not a common phenomenon for someone as young as Maan (played by Ishaan) to be in a passionate relationship with Saeeda bai (played by Tabu). That’s what makes it extraordinary.” Ishaan further speaks about the story of the book and the novel which revolves around a younger boy and an older woman’s relationship, “We have many taboos in our society. Through films and art, we can start a dialogue and bring in a new point of view. Mira is not the kind of director who believes in spoon-feeding the audience; she tells her stories unabashedly. This (Maan-Saeeda romance) is one story that couldn’t be watered down.”
Ishaan Khatter is super kicked about this one and rightly so. The actor also has Khaali Peeli in the pipeline where few scenes are left to be shot. The actor will be seen with Ananya Panday in Khaali Peeli and the film promises to be a fun and romantic drama.
