Talking about being a part of The White Tiger, Priyanka Chopra had earlier said, “I am so excited to work with Ramin Bahrani and Netflix to bring Aravind Adiga’s poignant story to cinematic life. When I read the book, I was fascinated with the perspective of the narrative. The story’s portrayal of raw ambition and the extent one will go to, to achieve one’s goals is riveting. I look forward to filming this in India this fall, and also working along with Rajkummar for the first time and the wonderful cast Ramin is putting together.”

On the film front, Rajkummar Rao is looking forward to the release of his next movie Made In China, co-starring Mouni Roy and Boman Irani. Priyanka Chopra, on the other hand, is busy promoting her much-awaited Hindi film The Sky Is Pink with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. Directed by Shonali Bose, The Sky Is Pink is slated for its date with cinemas on 11th October, 2019.
