Malavika Mohanan’s performance in Majid Majidi's Beyond The Clouds received critical acclaim and appreciation. There has been a generous curiosity about the actor’s next project ever since. And now we hear that we might soon be able to watch the talented actor in a project that will be helmed by Mira Nair.
The Monsoon Wedding director has been working on the screen adaptation of Vikram Seth's popular novel, A Suitable Boy. A source said to an entertainment portal that Nair, among other filmmakers, was impressed by her performance in Beyond The Clouds. She met Mohanan and auditioned her to play the protagonist in the digital series. The source also added that an international player will be producing the digital adaptation of A Suitable Boy.
Along with Mohanan, two other girls have been shortlisted to essay Lata Mehra in the series. The source also said that Mohanan is leading the race as Nair feels that she perfectly fits the bill. The final decision will, however, be taken by the content creators, investors and producers.
It will be interesting to see Mohanan collaborating with an internationally acclaimed director yet again after Majidi. Nair who has given us films like Salaam Bombay!, Mississippi Masala and The Namesake among others will surely give us something very interesting with this web series!
