The teaser from Parineeti Chopra starring The Girl on the Train is out. The first few pictures of the teaser show Parineeti in London as she looks out of a train window in panic. We then see her in a murky state.
This looks like an intense role for Parineeti, which was last seen in 2019’s Jabariya Jodi. The Girl on the Train is based on Paula Hawkins’ 2015 novel of the same name. The novel was previously adapted into a Hollywood film starring Emily Blunt.
The girl on the train follows an alcoholic woman who sees a couple as she rides the train every day and begins to avenge them until she becomes involved in a missing person’s case and her secrets begin to be revealed.
Parineeti Chopra said earlier in a statement, “Emily Blunt’s appearance in The Girl on the Train had blown my mind and it is a privilege for me to play the character that she has written so brilliantly on screen. The restraint and reach she showed as an actress while playing a girl who is restless and fights herself in the film showed what an amazing actress she is. When any actor makes a remake of a beloved movie, there are expectations to match the original, if not better. So I’m aware that the audience will look at our film and draw comparisons to the original and compare my portrayal of the main character vs. Emily’s. ”
Ribhu Dasgupta director also plays Aditi Rao Hydari, Kirti Kulhari, Avinash Tiwary and Tota Roy Choudhury.
The Girl on the Train will be released on Netflix on February 26th.
