A Suitable Boy is the story of Lata, trying to find a voice in the 1951 India when the country itself was trying to find its identity.

Excited about this new project, Tabu told BBC:

Coming together with Mira after The Namesake is a thing of great joy for me. And to collaborate with her and the BBC for Vikram Seth’s book is something I’m so looking forward to. Along with being a dedicated and engaging film maker Mira is also someone who is the most fun to work with.
