Vijay Varma to be a part of Mira Nair's upcoming web series

Gully Boy's popular star Vijay Varma has bagged his first international project, and will soon be seen in ace filmmaker Mira Nair's upcoming series 'A Suitable Boy.'

In this adaptation of Vikram Seth's much-acclaimed novel, Vijay will be seen playing the character of Rasheed, a student at Brahmpur University and also an Arabic teacher. The story of this series revolves around four families and is set in the post-independence era.

Talking about the same, Vijay said, "I am elated to be part of a Mira Nair project. I've been the biggest admirer of her work and cannot wait to make this illustrious story come alive. During the process of screen tests, I read a few parts but it was the character of Rasheed that really attracted me as an actor and I was drawn to it. I'm glad that this project came my way and I'm looking forward to working with a stellar team."

The shooting of the series will begin in September this year.
