The award-winning novel The White Tiger will be adapted into a Netflix film and will unite Rajkummar Rao and Priyanka Chopra for the first time.
The film will be directed by Ramin Bahrani and produced by Priyanka and Mukul Deora.
Speaking about the project, Priyanka shares:
“I’m so excited to work with Ramin Bahrani and Netflix to bring Aravind Adiga’s poignant story to cinematic life.
When I read the book, I was fascinated with the perspective of the narrative. The story’s portrayal of raw ambition and the extent one will go to achieve one’s goals is riveting.
I look forward to filming this in India this fall and also working along with Rajkummar Rao for the first time and the wonderful cast Ramin is putting together.”
Rajkummar states: “It’s an exciting time for actors today and I’m thrilled to be a part of such a world-class project.
I’ve been an admirer of Ramin’s work and am excited to see The White Tiger come to life with Netflix!”
The White Tiger will go on floors in the month of October this year in India.
