Actor Ishaan Khatter says it was easy to romance Tabu in Mira Nair's anticipated "A Suitable Boy". Asked why, Ishaan replied: "Because that person is Tabu, it really does half the job for you. I have said this before and I have said this in 'Dhadak' as well, it is always easy for me to play the besotted lover. Because she's mesmerizing, she is and especially in this character. I am really excited for people to see Saaeda Bai."
He has a nickname for Tabu as well. "It is Tabasco! Tabasco for Tabassum. I came up with it. She's mirchi!" he said. In "A Suitable Boy", Ishaan plays Maan Kapoor, the rebellious son of politician Mahesh Kapoor (played by Ram Kapoor), who develops an attraction to the beautiful courtesan Saaeda Bai (essayed by Tabu).
"But, yes a lot of thought, a lot of critical thought goes behind decisions, at least for me. Both of them are different from the work that I have done before and they are different from each other. I don't think I'll be any good if I feel even slightly complacent on a set. So, I don't want to ever be in that," he said in a podcast of JioSaavn's "#NoFilterNeha Season 4".
