Netflix released on Tuesday a teaser for Parineeti Chopra’s upcoming thriller The Girl On The Train. It amassed over a million views on YouTube in just one day.

The film also stars Aditi Rao Hydari, Kirti Kulhari, and Avinash Tiwary, Bollywood Hungama reported.

Directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, The Girl On The Train is an official remake of the 2016 American film of the same name starring Emily Blunt. It is based on Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel.

Parineeti’s cousin Priyanka Chopra shared the teaser on her Instagram to give her a shout-out. “Proud of my girl, can’t wait to see more,” she wrote.

He added that working on the film was a “fruitful” experience, hoping the audience would be excited to watch it.

The film was scheduled for a theatrical release in May 2020 but was delayed due to the pandemic. It was filmed in London last year.

It will now be released on February 26.

Parineeti was last seen in action comedy Jabariya Jodi alongside Sidharth Malhotra in 2019.
