She said in a 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 on-screen before.”

Director Ribhu said, “The character is edgy, dark, and gritty along with being extremely emotional. So it is great to team up with someone like Parineeti, who is an extremely sincere actor and a powerful performer.”

“‘The Girl On The Train’ is one of the best psychological thrillers and also a heartwarming story of the female protagonist and her discovery of life. We have procured the rights of the book and the film and will be adapting it from an Indian storytelling perspective. Amblin will be a partner in this film,” Shibasish Sarkar, Group CEO Reliance Entertainment, continued.

The original film was based on the Paula Hawkins’ 2015 debut novel with the same name and starred Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux, Luke Evans, Allison Janney, Édgar Ramírez and Lisa Kudrow. The story revolves around an alcoholic divorcee who gets caught in a missing person investigation.
