What started off as a successful (sometimes hit-and-miss) strategy for some directors has now become a go-to mantra for Bollywood, whenever they run out of fresh ideas and concepts- remake another movie. And in the huge ocean of official remakes, another movie has now found its way.
After delivering a great performance in 'Kesari' and stepping into the shoes of ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal for her upcoming biopic, Parineeti Chopra is all set to take up another challenging role of her career, as she will reprise the role of Emily Blunt in the official Bollywood remake of 'The Girl On The Train'.

'Te3n' director, Ribhu Dasgupta will be helming this project, the name of which is yet to be announced. The American psychological mystery thriller was directed by Tate Taylor and was an adaptation of Paula Hawkins' bestselling book of the same name.
Emily Blunt was brilliant as Rachel, an alcoholic divorcee, who gets dragged into a missing person's investigation. In fact, she won several awards and nominations for the film. So, naturally, expectations are really high from Parineeti.

Earlier, Parineeti said in a press statement, "I want to do roles that audiences haven't seen me in before and ones 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".
Reportedly, the film is entirely based in the UK and is expected to release in 2020.
