Ishaan Khatter is set to make his Hollywood debut with an upcoming series called The Perfect Couple. He shared the cast announcement list on his social media a few weeks ago. The show will see Ishaan alongside Nicole Kidman and Dakota Fanning. The Perfect Couple is a story about a mother (played by Nicole Kidman) who is planning her son’s wedding, but everything goes downhill after she finds a body. Ishaan Khatter plays the groom’s best friend, named Shooter Dival.
Sharing the post-Ishaan wrote in the caption, ‘New Beginnings’. The Netflix original will have a 6-episode miniseries and will also star Live Schreiber and Omar Epps, among others.
Ishaan shared that he auditioned for the role and did not accept it. In a recent interview, she mentioned, “I certainly wasn’t up to it! I went through the whole process and auditioned for it. I also don’t think there is enough information to label it mainstream or not yet.”
He further adds that the role is also propelling him as an actor. “I have always aspired to explore myself through my characters while (hopefully) bringing them to life. It is a symbiotic relationship. This part gives me the chance to explore a distinctly different side of myself as a performer and a professional.”
Speaking about the experience, Ishaan says, “It feels great, it’s always wonderful to play with an exciting cast and it keeps me on my toes in the best way. They are certainly very talented and experienced performers on the show, not only in the cast but also behind the scenes and I am also very pleased to be working with such a confident and creative director as Susanne Bier.”
Ishaan Khatter rose to fame after starring in Dhadak alongside Janhvi Kapoor. He was last seen in Phone Bhoot, along with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Katrina Kaif. The actor will also appear in Pippa opposite Mrunal Thakur, which is based on the setting of the Battle of Garibpur during the 1971 Indo-Pak war.
