Reliance Entertainment has announced that it will be making a Hindi remake of Emily Blunt's; The Girl on the Train, with Parineeti Chopra reprising the role of Blunt!


In a press statement released by her; the Hasee Toh Phasee actress has said," I want to do roles that audiences haven't seen me in before and one's that require a lot of prep and homework, which is why The Girl On The Train really worked for me. The character is an alcoholic and a victim of abuse, and I haven't explored anything like her onscreen before".

Her statement further reads," It's exciting because I never thought I'd actually be doing a film around a book I've read and loved. I relate to the character because I've studied and worked in London, it's my second home... I even know the tube maps inside out. I can't wait to start shooting the film and relive those days and I hope people enjoy seeing me in a completely new avatar in this film." 


Reliance group CEO; Shibashish Sarkar was quoted saying," Not only is The Girl On The Train, one of the best psychological thrillers but also a heartwarming story of the female protagonist and her discovery of life. We have procured the rights of the book and the film and will be adapting it from an Indian storytelling perspective. Amblin will be a partner in this film."


The remake will be directed by Ribhu Dasgupta; who feels that Pari is the ideal choice to play the protagonist. Voiving his thoughts about the same; Dasgupta said," The character is edgy, dark, and gritty along with being extremely emotional. So it is great to team up with someone like Parineeti, who is an extremely sincere actor and a powerful performer."


The film will see Parineeti essay the role of an alcoholic divorcee; who gets embroiled in a mission person case! The role that was originally pulled off by Emily Blunt, in the feature adaptation of Paula Hawkins bestselling book titled by the same name, The Girl on the Train!


The remake is expected to go on floors from mid-July and will be shot extensively in the United Kingdom and is expected to hit the theaters by 2020!
