Vijay Varma, who rose to fame with Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, has been roped in to star in Mira Nair's A Suitable Boy, which is his first international project.

In the Indian-American filmmaker's series for BBC World, which is an adaptation of Vikram Seth's much acclaimed novel of the same name, Vijay will be seen playing the character of Rasheed, a student at Brahmpur University, who is also an Arabic teacher. 

The story of A Suitable Boy is set in the time after independence and revolves around four families. The novel is divided in 19 parts, each focusing on different sub-plots. 

"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," Vijay said in a statement.

"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. I was drawn to it. I'm glad that this project came my way and I'm looking forward to be working with a stellar team," he added.

The shooting of the series is set to begin in September this year.
