The makers of ‘The White Tiger’ have released its trailer. It stars Priyanka Chopra and Rajkummar Rao playing a couple and Adarsh Gourav playing their chauffeur. In the trailer, we see most of the scenes are of Adarsh who wants to become wealthy like his master and he totally stands out in his character. It seems that this rags to riches story will be of ambition, violence, conspiracy, class-divide and corruption. Adarsh who is playing the driver of Rajkummar Rao wants to rise the social ladder.
The movie is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Aravind Adiga. Ramin Bahrani has adapted and directed the film. Bahrani told Deadline, “It’s pretty startling when you see the film, which is about castes and class inequality, and say, ‘Wow, this feels a lot like America or anywhere else in the world right now. Seeing the journey of someone who feels that trapped and will do anything to break free is something we can relate to maybe now more than ever in the tragic age of COVID.”

It will be released in December in select theatres and on Netflix in January.
