Appreciation tweet for Ishaan khatter as maan kapoor ❤️ I had this big smile on my face everytime I saw him on the screen, he played this character so beautifully.

Last night I watched the first two episodes of #ASuitableBoy on Netflix. What the hell is going on! The book is a fav, I re-read it every other year. It’s a magnum opus! I wasn’t expecting much from the show, but this was plain awful.— Suvasini Sridharan (@Suvasini1984) October 24, 2020
Couldn't have put the collective disappointment of those who read & loved the book, in better words than @RajaSen #ASuitableBoy is inauthentic, parod-ish & made for Hollywood. Period. #disappointed https://t.co/NqxdrB67vb— Victory Flower (@VictoryFlower01) October 24, 2020
Meanwhile, talking about working with Tabu, Ishaan Khatter told IANS, “I knew early on that she could be a part of 'A Suitable Boy'. Mira (Nair) ma'm had told me that it would be Tabu playing the role of Saeeda bai, and she would love to have me play Mann.”
He further added,
"I was looking forward to meeting her," he said, adding: "The first time I met her I felt reassured it would be a special experience working with Tabu, because she is not only a fantastic actor and an incredibly gifted performer, but also so easy to have a conversation with."
