A suitable soundtrack: Kavita Seth on turning composer for Mira Nair’s latest period drama

Kavita Seth does not wish to owe her popularity to Iktara, or Bollywood. And with the response she is getting for her work on BBC’s A Suitable Boy, she may not have to gripe about it for long. In a conversation with A Humming Heart, she is positively beaming when she says, “I study shayars, I have a lot more to say and do, and I have created my own world with projects tailored for creative satisfaction.”

So, in the summer of 2019, when British-Indian filmmaker Mira Nair got in touch with her, she was ardent to work alongside the Golden Lion-winning director.  “I was really humbled that it was my online show ‘Main Kavita Hoon’ that helped me bag this project.”
