For the unversed, The Girl on the Train, featuring Emily Blunt, was an official adaptation of Paul Hawkins bestseller of the same name. The Hindi remake of the film is being directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, who told Mumbai Mirror, “It’s a turning point in the narrative and will really surprise you. We have been shooting here for the last 15-20 days, almost 16 hours a day, and I have to say that Parineeti has a lot to offer, her talent is still untapped.”
He added, “We have chosen a colour palette of black, grey, brown and deep green for Parineeti, with a focus on her dialogue delivery and body language.”
Earlier speaking about the film, Parineeti had said, “Emily’s performance is a super reference point for me. She has brought to life a character from paper and she was a genius at it. I will try to add my own rendition to the character that people have seen and loved so much. As an actor, I have always wanted to challenge myself and enjoy acting. This role gives me an opportunity to do just that and showcase my versatility even more. I hope it will be interesting for people to see how Emily and I performed the same role with our individual uniqueness.”
The film is expected to hit the theatres in 2020.
