After been missing from the big screen in Bollywood for a very long time, Priyanka Chopra recently made her comeback in Bollywood with a romantic love story, The Sky Is Pink. After the success of The Sky Is Pink on the box office, Priyanka Chopra will soon be seen in her next project, White Tiger. The film also casts Rajkummar Rao and debutant Adarsh Gourav.
Reportedly, White Tiger is an adaptation of the Booker Prize winner Aravind Adiga’s book of the same name, 'The White Tiger'. This novel created quite a buzz when the book was launched. It also won Aravind Adiga the Man Booker prize in 2008. It is said that the film is helmed by Iranian-American filmmaker Ramin Bahrani and is Priyanka Chopra’s second co-production after The Sky Is Pink. It is said that she will co-produce this film with Mukul Deora. White Tiger is Netflix’s original production that will begin shooting in India this year.
According to reports, White Tiger tracks the journey of an ambitious chaiwallah, whose self-made journey takes him to the pinnacle of success as a big-shot entrepreneur. However, the plot of the story is filled with love, crime and deceit. Talking about the film, Priyanka said in a statement, “I’m so excited to work with Ramin Bahrani and Netflix to bring Aravind Adiga’s poignant story to cinematic life. When I read the book, I was fascinated with the perspective of the narrative. The story’s portrayal of raw ambition and the extent one will go to achieve one’s goals is riveting. I look forward to filming this in India this fall and also working along with Rajkummar Rao for the first time and the wonderful cast Ramin is putting together”.
Apart from White Tiger, Priyanka Chopra’s upcoming projects also include We Can Be Heroes directed by Robert Rodriguez, of Spy Kids fame. Rajkumar Rao was recently seen in Mikhil Musale’s comedy-drama, Made In China. He will be seen in Hardik Mehta’s Roohi Afza and Hansal Mehta’s Turram Khan in 2020. Roohi Afza also stars Jahnvi Kapoor and Turram Khan also stars Kriti Kharbanda.
