Priyanka Chopra and Rajkummar Rao will star in Netflix’s upcoming film, The White Tiger. An adaptation of Arvind Adiga’s Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name, the film will be directed by Iranian-American director Ramin Bahrani. Debutant actor Adarsh Gourav will also be seen in the film. 

“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 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,” Priyanka said.

Rajkummar shared his excitement for his first Netflix project. “It’s an exciting time for actors today and I’m thrilled to be a part of such a world-class project. I’ve been an admirer of Ramin’s work and am excited to see The White Tiger come to life,” he said. 

Ramin Bahrani is known for directing the films Man Push Cart, Chop Shop and Fahrenheit 451. Netflix had earlier adapted Arvind Adiga’s 2016 book, Selection Day, into a web-series.
