Kapoor has worked with Nair earlier in Monsoon Wedding and Words with Gods. While talking about collaborating with the filmmaker once again, Ram said, “I have worked with Mira Nair on two films — Monsoon Wedding and Words with Gods, both of which have been masterpieces. Working with her has been a delight and I cannot wait to see how beautifully she paints a picture of A Suitable Boy. I play Mahesh Kapoor in the series, a veteran politician who is not only a patriot, but also a reformist at the same time. He is a character with multiple shades and layers, and I’m looking forward to getting under his skin.”
Shahana Goswami, who collaborates with Mira Nair for the first time, said, “It is been a dream to work with Mira since I was a kid and there couldn’t be a better project to be able to collaborate with her on.”
