The trailer for A Suitable Boy is out. The show is a six-part miniseries based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Vikram Seth. It is set to be streamed on the BBC. In the one minute 12 seconds long trailer, we get to see glimpses of the central characters of the show which include Tabu, Ishaan Khatter, Tanya Maniktala, Rasika Dugal, Ram Kapoor among many others.
In the trailer, we see Lata’s character played by Tanya who is searching for a suitor courtesy of her mother. She is determined to get her daughter married who amidst all that falls in love with a Muslim boy. As the story is set in 1951, religion and caste issues were indeed prominent. On the other hand, Ishaan plays the role of Ram’s onscreen son and he is in love with much older woman played by Tabu. This doesn’t go well with Ram, who wants his son to follow his footsteps in politics.
