Parineeti Chopra has been signed for the official Hindi remake of the 2016 film ‘The Girl on the Train’. Parineeti started shooting for the movie in London. As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Kirti Kulhari also joined the cast. She will be playing Aaliyah Shergill, a British cop.
Talking about her role in the movie, Kirti told Mumbai Mirror that it is an interesting character with a unique look and something that no one has sported in Bollywood before.
She will be getting trained in kickboxing. “The training will give me the body language of a cop. We had toyed with the idea of a British accent but then Ribhu thought it would divert the focus from my performance. Instead, I’m watching documentaries and murder mysteries to understand the job profile and working style of an investigative officer in the UK,” said Kirti.
Kirti was earlier seen in ‘Pink’ and her next release is ‘Mission Mangal’ that has an ensemble cast. Talking about working in ‘The Girl on the Train’, she said, “I love the fact that so many woman-driven stories are being made and I am happy to be a part of them. In Hollywood, big stars come together to make a great film. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case in Bollywood. But now, people are opening up to the idea and things are changing.”
‘The Girl on the Train’ also stars Aditi Rao Hydari. This is her first movie with Parineeti and Aditi. She will start shooting for the movie on August 16.
