The famous actress Priyanka Chopra has shared the first look of her upcoming Netflix web series today on October 16. The web series is based on a prize-winning book by Aravind Adiga. The actor Rajkummar Rao, Priyanka Chopra, and Adarsh Gourav are the main leading characters of the web series.
Priyanka Chopra took it to Instagram and shared the first look of the web series 'The White Tiger'. The actress said, "So proud to present the first look of THE WHITE TIGER - directed, written, and produced by Ramin Bahrani, based on The New York Times Bestseller and the 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel.
The actress further added that "This is a story about a family and the plight of one man - Balram Halwai played by Adarsh Gourav, one of the most talented newcomers I've ever worked with, and one of the most remarkable performances I’ve seen in a long time. Balram’s rise from a poor villager to successful entrepreneur in modern India showcases how hunger and the lack of opportunity can build and drive a human being’s animal instinct of survival.
Rajkumar Rao, already one of the most prolific actors in india, will showcase depths very few can.
The film is powerful. It will make you uncomfortable, and most importantly it will entertain you. Coming soon to Netflix globally."
In her other Instagram post, she talks about the character she is going to play in the web series. She says, "In #TheWhiteTiger, I play the role of Pinky madam, who is a first generation immigrant in the US. She is in India with her husband, who is travelling for business. And then... life changes! Pinky madam is such a specific character, to play her unravelling in the story was such a joy. This is a story that needs to be told and it comes alive with its characters so compellingly in Ramin’s hands.”
