The first look of the movie was unveiled a few hours ago and features the two lead actors. Ishaan is playing the role of Maan Kapoor, who is infatuated with a courtesan named Saeeda Bai played by Tabu.
In the image, Ishaan looks completely in awe of Tabu. The duo is seen lying on a swing facing each other. While Tabu is looking enchanting in her yellow Anarkali, Ishaan is looking good in his blue kurta and white pyjamas.
The novel is set in post-independence era and follows the story of four families over a period of eighteen months and centers on Mrs. Rupa Mehra’s efforts to arrange the marriage of her younger daughter, Lata to ‘A Suitable Boy’.
While this is Ishaan’s first film with Nair, it’s Tabu’s second after The Namesake. The film will be shot across, Lucknow and Maheshwar and it also stars Rasika Dugal.
