We all know that internationally acclaimed filmmaker Mira Nair is all set to begin work on a BBC-Netflix series based on prolific writer Vikram Seth's bestselling novel, A Suitable Boy. While everyone is curious to know the primary cast of the series, a tabloid reports that the award-winning filmmaker was recently in Mumbai to scout for actors for the screen adaptation and held meetings with Radhika Apte, Richa Chadha and Shefali Shah. Tabu is also on the wish-list of the director.
"Mira met Radhika, Richa and some actresses from regional cinema. They were casual meetings and not auditions per se. Mira is quite instinctive and can gauge easily if a certain actor fits the bill. She also had a chat with Tabu about the project. The author has been specific in his sketch of Lata Mehra — her character is shown as the right mix of rebellious and subservient. As per the original text, it is mentioned that she is of dusky complexion. Mira wants to stay honest to the source material as much as possible," reveals a source.
The regular shooting of the series is expected to commence in the second half of the year.
