Even as an OTT major released the first look of its film The White Tiger starring newcomer Adarsh Gourav, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Rajkummar Rao, PCJ also posted the first look of the film on her social media handle.

“So proud to present the first look of The White Tiger — directed, written, and produced by Ramin Bahrani, based on The New York Times Bestseller and the 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel. This is a story about a family and the plight of one man — Balram Halwai played by Adarsh Gourav, one of the most talented newcomers I’ve ever worked with, and one of the most remarkable performances I’ve seen in a long time. Balram’s rise from a poor villager to successful entrepreneur in modern India showcases how hunger and the lack of opportunity can build and drive a human being’s animal instinct of survival. Rajkumar Rao, already one of the most prolific actors in India, will showcase depths very few can. The film is powerful. It will make you uncomfortable, and most importantly it will entertain you,” the actress said in a statement.

The film is directed by the American-born Iranian filmmaker Ramin Bahrani, who has made films like Fahrenheit 451 and 99 Homes. It is produced by Bahrani along with Mukul Deora. Priyanka also functions as the executive producer of the film.
