Priyanka Chopra to star in new Netflix movie


We can expect to see Priyanka Chopra on our small screens very soon; she’s just landed a starring role in a new Netflix film.

Chopra revealed she has been cast in The White Tiger, an adaptation of the Man Booker prize-winning novel by Aravind Adiga. The book tells the story of a young village boy, Balram Halwai, who seeks a life of freedom outside of the impoverished India he was born into.

Chopra will both star in and executive produce the film, according to Metro. She’ll work alongside co-stars Rajkummar Rao and newcomer Adarsh Gourav, while Ramin Bahrani will write and direct.

“Bringing one of my favourite books to life, White Tiger, as both and actor and EP, looks like it will be an awesome end to the year,” Chopra shared on Instagram.

It’s a busy period for the actress – she’s also starring in film The Sky Is Pink, which tells the story of Indian author and motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary and her family.

“So looking forward to these two projects,” she wrote in her caption. “Working with both @rodriguez and #RaminBahrani is like night and day, and that’s so exciting for me.”

The Sky Is Pink premieres internationally on 11 October.
