Parineeti Chopra's The Girl On The Train to be released on Netflix

Published: 13th January 2021

Parineeti Chopra's murder mystery The Girl On The Train will skip its theatrical release, and stream directly on Netflix.

Directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, The Girl On The Train will premiere on Netflix on February 26. The film was due to be released theatrically in May 2020, but got postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The film is the Hindi remake of The Girl On The Train, a Hollywood thriller based on Paula Hawkins' 2015 bestseller of the same name. The Hollywood film by Tate Taylor featured Emily Blunt in the lead role.

The film follows the story of Meera (Parineeti), who fixates on the perfect lives of a couple from afar, during her daily train commutes. One day, she witnesses something out of the ordinary that shocks her. It also stars Aditi Rao Hydari, Kirti Kulhari, and Avinash Tiwary.

Director Ribhu, while speaking about the project, said, "I always wanted to explore this genre and loved this unique story. There is plenty to relate to both in terms of the emotions and mysteries that I was able to delve into in this thriller — rejection, loneliness, voyeurism, daily commutes on which we see and don't see things."

"It was an extremely fruitful experience working on the film. I hope the audience will be as excited watching The Girl On The Train as I was making it," he added.
