After having impressed critics and the public alike in Majid Majidi’s Beyond the Clouds and Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak, actor Ishaan Khatter is all set to star in an international web-series which will be helmed by Mira Nair.
Khatter played a young man called Aamir in his debut film, Beyond the Clouds and received a lot of praise from critics for his performance. “Ultimately the film offers comfort in the familiar…for those that seek it. It’s Majid Majidi-lite at best; a bittersweet, inoffensive drama that runs, but never flies,” said critic Rajeev Masand writing for News 18.
However, Dhadak failed to do as well with the critics considering that the Sairat remake seems to have ignored the caste angle altogether. That wasn’t fondly looked at on social media either.
Now, Filmfare reports that Nair is also keen on having Alia Bhatt on board. With Nair’s experience (remember Monsoon Wedding and The Namesake?) and Khatter’s talent, this is one collaboration we’re looking forward to.
