Remember Emily Blunt’s thriller movie The Girl on the Train movie? It’s being remade in Bollywood with Parineeti Chopra in the lead.
India has had a hot and cold relationship when it comes to Hollywood movies being remade in Bollywood. While there are some amazing adaptations and remakes over the past years, Bollywood has also missed the mark at a few occasions. B-Town is taking a chance yet again by remaking Emily Blunt starrer The Girl on the Train. The thriller, which blew movie lovers’ minds at the time of its release, is being remade in Hindi with Kesari actress Parineeti Chopra in the lead.
The original movie was an adaptation of a book with the same titled penned down by Paula Hawkins. The Hollywood movie saw Emily Blunt portray the role of “The Girl on the Train.” The movie also starred Justin Theroux, Rebecca Ferguson and Luke Evans, in pivotal roles. The movie followed the tale of a recent alcoholic divorcee who spent most of her time fantasising about a perfect couple who lived in a beautiful house she saw during her train commutes. A series of events involving the couple she fantasised about take place and her life takes an ugly turn.
It would be interesting to see how Parineeti Chopra makes the role her own and brings the Hindi remake to life. Variety reports that the movie will be directed by Ribhu Dasgupta. The filmmaker has worked on movies like Amitabh Bachchan starrer Te3n and Micheal featuring Naseeruddin Shah.
