The teaser which was unveiled today, gives us a sneak-peek of some exciting ‘thrills’ from the film.
Speaking about the film, director Ribhu Dasgupta 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.”
Earlier, Parineeti Chopra had described The Girl On The Train was her ‘most difficult role to do.’ ” “We’ve started shooting for Girl On The Train in London. It’s my most difficult role to date; I feel like I’m in a hostel, with no time (or headspace) for social media or chilling or doing anything else. It’s a new experience for me – being cut off from everything and everyone else,” the actress was quoted as saying.
Besides Parineeti Chopra, The Girl On The Train also stars Aditi Rao Hydari and Avinash Tewary of Bullbul fame in pivotal role. The film is slated to release on February 26, 2021 on Netflix.
