Priyanka Chopra and Rajkummar Rao starrer ‘The White Tiger’ official trailer released today on Netflix’s YouTube channel.
The trailer opens with Adarsh Gourav wanting to be Rajkummar Rao’s driver and things go well for him until one night the character played by Priyanka Chopra hits their car and Adarsh’s character is made to take the blame for it.

The trailer then shows Adarsh and the rich Indian family at loggerheads during which he says, “I would have to become the creature that gets born only once every generation … The White Tiger.” The White Tiger is director Ramin Bahrani’s adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s Man Booker Prize-winning debut novel of the same name.
Priyanka and Rajkummar play the role of a couple whose lives change after they travel to India from the US for business. Adarsh Gourav plays the role of their poor driver Balram Halwai in the film.
The White Tiger will release in select theatres, as well as on Netflix on January 22. Earlier, sharing the first look poster from The White Tiger, Priyanka Chopra wrote: “In #TheWhiteTiger, I play the role of Pinky madam, who is a first-generation immigrant in the US. She is in India with her husband, who is travelling for business. And then… life changes! Pinky madam is such a specific character, to play her unravelling in the story was such a joy. This is a story that needs to be told and it comes alive with its characters so compellingly in Ramin’s hands.”
The trailer description of the film reads, “The ambitious driver (Adarsh Gourav) of a rich Indian couple (Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Rajkummar Rao) uses his wit and cunning to escape from poverty and become an entrepreneur. The White Tiger is based on the bestselling novel by Aravind Adiga, directed and written for the screen by Ramin Bahrani and executive produced by Ava DuVernay, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and producer Mukul Deora.”
