Forget Mumbai, Parineeti Chopra won't be able to be in India for two whole months. She will be spending time in the UK. The reason: a film shoot. According to a report in DNA, from July onwards, Parineeti Chopra, who has bagged the official remake of the Hollywood hit The Girl On The Train, is likely to be stationed in England for two months. Parineeti has been cast for the role that was essayed by Emily Blunt in the original.
Since a larger part of this psychological thriller unfolds in trains, it’s but natural that Parineeti will be shooting the film inside real locomotives in the UK.
The actress is also expected to take multiple train rides across the country for two months with passengers from across the globe keeping her company. Those who have seen the original are aware that it was shot in an authentic way with Emily riding alongside real people.
A source from the line production team told DNA, “It’s a thriller that unfolds with Pari’s character witnessing things during her repeated journeys on the train and how she experiences a gamut of emotions during those long rides. So, she is required to travel almost continuously. The train is a key element of the film.”
Parineeti hasn't been seen for a long time on the big screen after her last outing with Arjun Kapoor, Namaste England tanked at the box-office.
The remake of The Girl On The Train will be filmed completely in England in a single schedule. "For me to remain in the mood and for the crew to remain in the flow of things we decided to shoot this film in one schedule in England. We will be going in July. Usually, England is always a holiday spot for me but this time it's going to be like school," Parineeti told India Today.
Apart from starring in the remake of The Girl On The Train, Parineeti will also be seen in ace shuttler Saina Nehwal's biopic. Parineeti replaced Shraddha Kapoor in the film.
