Ishaan, in the film, will be playing Maan Kapoor, a young and free-spirited boy who gradually gets into a notional conflict with his politician father. Ishaan’s character develops an attraction to the beautiful courtesan Saaeda Bai (essayed by Tabu). ‘It’s not only my pleasure but an honour to be working on this illustrious material alongside such distinguished artists and technicians led by the indomitable Mira Nair. I hope I can satisfy her vision and give the global audience the character they deserve in Maan,’ he wrote, when he announced the film in August this year. Tabu, on the other hand, earlier collaborated with Mira Nair for The Namesake.
The film, based on Vikram Seth’s novel with the same name, will be divided into six parts and will be distributed by BBC Studios.
