Netflix: Rajkummar Rao, Priyanka Chopra declare the commencement of Netflix’s White Tiger
Performer Rajkummar Rao has yielded a couple of photographs announcing the initiation of The White Tiger, a forthcoming Netflix movie based on the book of the same name by Aravind Adiga. The star took to Instagram on Monday to post the photographs, the first of which reveals him posturing with Priyanka Chopra. The following image also includes filmmaker Ramin Bahrani and a co-star.
Rajkummar captioned the post, “Can’t wait to begin #TheWhiteTiger with these supremely talented people. @priyankachopra #RaminBahrani #AdarshGourav #MukulDeora @netflix @NetflixIndia.”
Priyanka inscribed, “Day 1 table read for #TheWhiteTiger with this amazingly capable team #RaminBahrani @rajkummar_rao @gouravadarsh! Can’t wait for shoot!!! @netflix @netflix_in.”
The White Tiger is the other Netflix adoption of an Adiga novel. The streaming service had earlier adapted Selection Day as well. Priyanka will also star in a forthcoming superhero movie led by Robert Rodriguez, also for Netflix. She earlier emerged in the rousseauistic comedy, Isn’t It Romantic.
“I’m so thrilled to work with Ramin Bahrani and Netflix to bring Aravind Adiga’s sarcastic story to cinematic life. When I read the book, I was fascinated with the perspective of the narrative. The story’s portrayal of raw passion and the extent one will go to to achieve one’s goals is riveting. I look forward to shooting this in India this fall and also working along with Rajkummar for the first time and the wonderful cast Ramin is putting collectively,” Priyanka told in a statement.
The White Tiger follows the remarkable journey of a self-made man from a tea-shop worker in a village to flourishing entrepreneur in a big city. “I have wanted to make a film of Aravind Adiga’s profound novel The White Tiger for over a decade. I am thankful to have the opportunity to work with Mukul Deora, Netflix and such an incredible cast on this project,” stated Bahrani in a description. The acclaimed filmmaker’s last film was an adaptation of Fahrenheit 451, starring Michael B Jordan.
