The Girl On The Train worked for me: Parineeti


After Saina Nehwal’s biopic, Parineeti Chopra has bagged yet another big project. The 30-year-old actor has been signed for the Hindi remake of Tate Taylor’s 2016 thriller ‘The Girl On The Train’. It will be helmed by Ribhu Dasgupta, who is currently busy with Netflix series ‘Bard of Blood’.

‘The Girl On The Train’, starring Emily Blunt, was an official adaptation of Paul Hawkins bestseller of the same name. It was bankrolled by Amblin Partners, DreamWorks, Marc Platt Productions and Reliance Entertainment.

The film chronicled the story of an alcoholic divorcee who rides a train every day and idolizes a couple as her train passes through their house. But one day she gets involved in the investigation of a missing person. It also starred Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux, Luke Evans, Allison Janney, Édgar Ramírez and Lisa Kudrow.

Excited about working on the yet-to-be-titled project, Parineeti Chopra said, “I want to do roles that audiences haven’t seen me in before and ones that require a lot of prep and homework, which is why ‘The Girl On The Train’ really worked for me. The character is an alcoholic and a victim of abuse, and I haven’t explored anything like her onscreen before”.
