Mumbai: The first teaser of ‘The Girl on the Train’ is finally out and gives a peek into its atmospheric and suspenseful world, with Parineeti Chopra as an alcoholic woman who is also our (often unreliable) narrator. With no dialogues or action in the teaser, we only see Parineeti’s deteriorating moods and physical condition as a harbinger of things to come in the film.
Based on Paula Hawkins’ 2015 bestseller, the film has been directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, also stars Aditi Rao Hydari, Kirti Kulhari, and Avinash Tiwary. The novel was earlier tailored right into a Hollywood movie, starring Emily Blunt.
It follows Meera Chopra (played by Parineeti), who watches a couple every day through the open window of their house while traveling on the train every day to work. She sees something one day that shocks her and brings her fixation with the couple to the fore.
After wrapping up the film, Parineeti took to social media to bid farewell to her character in the film. Calling it a “life-changing” experience which will stay with her forever.
She wrote, “So, I leave London after seven weeks finishing The Girl On The Train. Words fail me. The feeling overwhelms me. This is a film that has, for the first time, stayed with me after I’ve finished it. A character that will live inside me permanently. I miss her. I miss playing with her. I feel like I’ve grown up. I feel so much. But most of all, I feel grateful. Life-changing, in an understatement…”
