Parineeti Chopra to head to England to shoot for a new project

Parineeti Chopra has finished shooting for Jabariya Jodi with Sidharth Malhotra and currently, she is prepping for the biopic of badminton icon Saina Nehwal. The actress has also bagged the official remake of Hollywood’s hit thriller The Girl on the Train, in which she will reprise the acclaimed role of the alcoholic divorcee played by Emily Blunt. 
Parineeti will soon begin shooting for the official remake of Hollywood hit.

She will be heading to England to shoot the film start to finish in mid-July. It’ll be two months of intense shooting. Parineeti confirmed saying, “I’m super excited to be shooting this film because this is a role that I have never experienced before, read before and I think the audience has never experienced this kind of acting piece from me. It’s a complete contrast to the kind of personality that is associated with me, so I am excited as an actor to do something completely new.”

Parineeti will begin prepping for the thriller from mid-June. She is very excited to begin work on the film and talking about the same, she said, “For me to remain in the mood and for the crew to remain in the flow of things we decided to shoot this film in one schedule in England, we will be going in July. Usually, England is always a holiday spot for me but this time it’s going to be like school. I want to only concentrate on acting – go every day to set, come back to the hotel, work on my character and go to sleep. Of course, England is home so I look forward to having my usual time with my friends and everybody that I know for so many years but mainly I think this time England is going to become my University again and I will become a student again because I am going to treat it like that to deliver the best possible performance. So yes, no fun and games there.”

Parineeti is aware that there is going to be a lot of comparisons with the original character, which was essayed by Emile Blunt. “I’m going to be working really hard on my role. I’m really excited to look at some footage of the original film, to look at references to play this character because I have never played this character before.” 


Based on the 2015 bestseller by Paula Hawkins, the film narrates the story of a divorced woman who gets entangled in a missing person’s investigation that throws her life to the brink. The official Hindi remake is being directed by director Rhibu Dasgupta.
