Netflix has unveiled the full trailer for its upcoming film, ‘The White Tiger,’ exec. produced by and starring Priyanka Chopra. The White Tiger will release in select theaters this new year and on Netflix on January 22, 2021, across 190 countries globally in multiple languages.
Adapted from Aravind Adiga’s 2008 New York Times and Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name, the film stars Adarsh Gourav, Rajkummar Rao, and Priyanka Chopra Jonas in lead roles, and has been written for the screen and directed by Ramin Bahrani. Bahrani and Adiga are old friends, with Adiga even having dedicated The White Tiger (novel) to the former.
The film is about Balram Halwai (Adarsh Gourav), who narrates his epic and darkly humorous rise from poor villager to successful entrepreneur in modern India. Cunning and ambitious, our young hero jockeys his way into becoming a driver for Ashok (Rajkummar Rao) and Pinky (Priyanka Chopra Jonas), who has just returned from America. Society has trained Balram to be one thing — a servant — so he makes himself indispensable to his rich masters. But after a night of betrayal, he realizes the corrupt lengths they will go to trap him and save themselves. On the verge of losing everything, Balram rebels against a rigged and unequal system to rise and become a new kind of master. Based on the New York Times bestseller and 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas said, "To bring this story to life for audiences around the world, as both an Executive Producer and a supporting actor, is my honor. Working with Ramin was an immersive experience. Raj is such a prolific actor and Adarsh is one of the most talented newcomers I've worked with. It was amazing to have Mukul Deora and his team at Watchtower, and Netflix come together, and it is great to have Ava DuVernay on board as Executive Producer.”
