Ever since the makers announced the Hindi remake of the 2016 Hollywood mystery thriller, The Girl On The Train, there has been a lot of intrigue regarding the cast of the film. We already know that Parineeti Chopra will essay the role that was played by Emily Blunt in the original film.
Rumours started floating around yesterday that the male lead that was played by Justin Theroux in the Tate Taylor directorial will be portrayed by Avinash Tiwary. Though there were no official announcements made by the makers of the film and the actor himself, speculations were rife that the Laila Majnu actor will play Parineeti’s ex-husband in the film.
When we contacted Avinash today, he cleared the air and said, “I have heard that too. I really do not know what is going to happen. I do not think I can comment on anything right now.”
Well, this has upped our curiosity even more. Avinash who wooed the audience and the critics with his portrayal of a young man madly in love in Imtiaz Ali’s Laila Majnu will be a rather perfect fit to play the part. All we can do now is wait and watch!
On a related note, Parineeti said that the film will be shot in England in a start-to-end schedule. The Hindi remake of The Girl on the Train will be directed by Ribhu Dasgupta and produced by Reliance Entertainment and Amblin Entertainment.
