Parineeti Chopra’s first look from The Girl On The Train is out. The film is an official remake of the Emily Blunt starrer of the same name.
After the decent success of Jabariya Jodi which also featured Sidharth Malhotra in the lead, Parineeti has moved on to her next upcoming project. She is also shooting for the Saina Nehwal biopic on an on-off basis.
The untitled film is being filmed in the UK and also features Aditi Rao Hydari, Kriti Kulhari and Avinash Tiwary.
The Girl On The Train is based on Paula Hawkins’ 2015 bestseller of the same name. Parineeti will essay the role of an alcoholic divorcee, originally played by Emily Blunt in the 2016 hit film. On the other hand, Kriti Kulhari will play the role of a British cop.
Parineeti shared the first look of her character from the film on her official Instagram handle. She wrote, “Something I’ve never done before. And the most difficult character I have ever played in my life.”
The Ishaqzaade fame actor had earlier spoken to the news agency IANS about her role: “I am super excited to be shooting this film because this is a role that I have never experienced before, read before and I think the audience has never experienced this kind of acting piece from me… So I am excited as an actor to do something completely new.”
Director Ribhu Dasgupta is helming the project. The filmmaker recently wrapped up Netflix’s and Shah Rukh Khan’s production Bard of Blood starring Emraan Hashmi and Kriti Kulhari among others.
Produced by Reliance Entertainment, The Girl On The Train is expected to release next year.
