Watch A Suitable Boy trailer:
Vijay essays the character of Rasheed. Rasheed is an Urdu teacher and coaches Saeeda’s (Tabu) sister with the language and diction. While Rasheed seems to be romantically inclined towards Saeeda’s younger sister, he has his own set of complexities and emotions to cope with. He also forms a friendship and attachment with the young and dynamic Maan Kapoor (Ishaan Khatter). Vijay had to focus on learning and understanding Urdu in order to essay his character authentically.

Talking about his experience, Vijay said, “Rasheed is an Urdu teacher so I had to focus on pronunciations and articulation of certain words and sentences. I spent a lot of time on research, listening to Urdu audio clips and also trained with an Urdu dialect coach to really sink into the character. Urdu is a beautiful and pure language and, if not spoken correctly, won’t have that kind of an impact. Rasheed’s character is complex and layered, and he has his own journey and struggles to deal with, which are revealed through the course of the story.”
