Parineeti Chopra will be shooting the
official remake of the acclaimed Hollywood hit The Girl on the Train for 2
months in England, starting July this year. Pari will reprise the hugely
acclaimed role of the protagonist essayed by top Hollywood actress Emily Blunt
in the original.
We hear Pari will be shooting the film in real locations and inside actual trains in England. Not only this, the actress will also take multiple train rides across the United Kingdom in these 2 months, with real people in company. The makers plan to capture the authenticity and make the film look more real and also stay true to its setting, as trains play an important role in the plot.
A source from the line production team
says, “This film is a thriller that unfolds with Pari’s character witnessing
things during her repeated journeys on the train. So, Pari will definitely be
needed to travel in trains. 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
Right from her debut Ishaqzaade and then
Hasee To Phasee and many other films, Pari has dazzled us with her performances.
And for The Girl on The Train remake, given the downward spiral her character
gets into, she has decided to keep to herself through the course of the film
and not make any plans of socialising or entertaining herself even though she
will be in the vibrant and colourful UK. Getting into the skin of the
character, we guess.
Based on the 2015 bestseller by Paula Hawkins, the film narrates the story of a divorcee woman who gets entangled in a shocking investigation of missing people that throws her life to the brink.
