During a Q&A session on India’s new series “How You Follow” on Twitter, Nair explained why he decided to take on Duggal for the BBC and Netflix series “A Subat Boy”.

In response to the question, he said, “I saw Rosica for the first time in the episode and I was attracted to her acting.” Duggal worked with Irrfan Khan, Tilottama Sham and Tisca Chopra in ‘Kisa’. The film directed by Anup Singh was acclaimed all over the world. Nair asked Duggal if he too had made a list of his favorite directors.

He wrote to Duggal, “Do you think the first time I saw an episode of you and we met? At this moment I decided to work with you. Do you have the same feelings towards the directors?”

Among the directors I’ve always wanted to work with, you gave me the first time you chose me to play Sabita.” A series of the same name based on the famous author Vikram Seth’s novel “A Suitable Boy” is being aired on Netflix on October 23.
