Parineeti Chopra is now ready to start shooting for her next film, the official remake of Hollywood hit film ‘The Girl on The Train’. 

Talking about the film, Parineeti said, "It is a privilege for me to play the character that she has essayed so brilliantly on screen. The restrain and range she showed as an actor while playing a girl who is troubled and battling herself in the film showed what a fantastic actor she is.”
 
She added, “When any actor does a remake of a loved film, there are expectations to match the original, if not better it. So, I realise that the audience will look at our film and draw comparisons to the original as well as compare my portrayal of the protagonist versus Emily's.”

 When asked how she will deal with audiences drawing a comparison between the two films, she said, “Embrace the fact that parallels will be drawn. Since the original film was so well-received by people, I'm hoping my film will also receive equal acclaim. I'm not thinking too much about the comparisons because I want to do my best to bring this character to life for Indian audiences.”

The film is based on the 2015 bestseller by Paula Hawkins as it narrates the story of a divorced woman who gets entangled in a missing person investigation that throws her life to the brink.

It will be produced by Reliance Entertainment and will be directed by Ribhu Dasgupta.
