Universal Pictures

Taking on the character played by the 'Mary Poppins Returns' actress in the 2016 thriller is Parineeti Chopra, who explains why she is looking forward to tackle the Hindi adaptation.

AceShowbiz - Emily Blunt's hit thriller "The Girl on the Train (2016)" is getting a Bollywood makeover.

Parineeti Chopra will take on the role Blunt played in the 2016 film for the Hindi version of Paula Hawkins' bestselling novel.

The Indian actress can't wait to get started on the film this summer, revealing "The Girl on the Train" is a dream project for her.

"I want to do roles that audiences haven't seen me in before and ones that require a lot of prep and homework, which is why 'The Girl on the Train' really worked for me," she says in a statement. "The character is an alcoholic and a victim of abuse, and I haven't explored anything like her onscreen before. I never thought I'd actually be doing a film around a book I've read and loved."
