Parineeti Chopra, who last featured in Kesari is all set to star in the official remake of the Hollywood hit, The Girl On The Train. Pari will start the shoot of the film in England for two months in July this year.
Parineeti Chopra who will essay the role of the protagonist, essayed by Hollywood actress Emily Blunt in the original, will be shooting the film in real locations and inside actual trains in England.
According to a source:
“It is a thriller than unfolds with Pari’s character witnessing things during her repeated journeys on the train. So, Pari will actually be needed to travel in trains through the course of filming to authentically capture the scenes. The train is like a very important character in the film and it’s important that we capture the scenes perfectly. What Pari goes through on the train is extremely important to the scenes in the film and its narrative. So, we had to shoot on real trains to ensure we stay true to the setting.”
Since the makers want to make the film look as real as possible and stay true to the setting of the film – with trains playing a very important part – the actress will shoot in real trains with real people for company.
Based on the 2015 bestseller by Paula Hawkins, The Girl On The Train narrates the story of a divorcee woman who gets entangled in a shocking missing persons investigation that throws her life to the brink.
