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."
