Gully Boy-fame Vijay Varma is all set to star in Mira Nair's A Suitable Boy, which will be his first international project.

In the Indian-American filmmaker's series, 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 and also an Arabic teacher.

The story of A Suitable Boy, set in the time after Independence, revolves around four families. The novel is divided into 19 parts, each part 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 screen tests, I read a few parts but it was the character of Rasheed that really attracted me as an actor. 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.
