Netflix has finally shared the first-look pictures of its most awaited web series, The White Tiger, starring Priyanka Chopra, Rajkumar Rao, and Adarsh Gourav.
The film is based on a Man Booker Prize-winning book by Aravind Adiga.
The series is directed by American director, Ramin Bahrani who is known for Fahrenheit 451 and 99 Homes fame. Netflix is producing the show in association with Mukul Deora and Priyanka Chopra is also an executive producer of this series.
Priyanka Chopra wrapped up filming for this show in December 2019 and said “It was such a pleasure to work with the best in the business in every department. The most hard-working crew and such a delightful cast. Thank you for all your brilliance. I can’t wait to see the finished product and share it with the world.”
According to reports in HT Priyanka Chopra is very excited to work with Ramin Bahrani. She says “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 to achieve one’s goals is riveting. I look forward to filming this in India this fall and also working along with Rajkummar for the first time and the wonderful cast Ramin is putting together.”
Director Bahrani says “I have wanted to make a film of Aravind Adiga’s brilliant novel The White Tiger for over a decade. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with Mukul Deora, Netflix, and such an incredible cast on this project.”
