Mumbai: As Mira Nair's web series 'A Suitable Boy', completes a year of its release on Monday, Actor Namit Das opens up on being a part of the show.
"I feel very happy that 'A Suitable Boy' is completing one year. It is still getting a lot of reviews and also being viewed continuously on Netflix and other platforms across the world. Initially, it had a very lukewarm sort of a response in the Indian market and a lot of friends called me to tell me that they expected it to be bigger. Every project has a different nature and we can understand this with time" Namit shared.
"A Suitable Boy is one of those projects which is not limited to only one time frame. I think it's going to be remembered for a very long time. It's based on Vikram Seth's novel and whoever has read it will want to watch the series. The book will always be alive and hence the show will always be alive. Anything that Mira Nair makes, survives the test of time," he added.
"Even after a year, it still remains fresh. I keep getting a lot of messages on social media. The character of Haresh Khanna was so close to my heart. There's so much hard work that went into it. I'm grateful to Mira and Vikram Seth and everyone involved in the making of the series," the actor further said.
In the series, Namit plays Haresh Khanna, a shoemaker, a businessman and one of the suitors of Lata, the lead character played by Tanya Maniktala.The series also features Tabu, Ishaan Khatter and Rasika Dugal in key roles.
