She gets unknowingly involved in a ruthless crime that she decides to solve.
Parineeti Chopra, playing the protagonist Meera Kapoor, said, “The Girl On The Train was an entirely different experience for me as I have never played this kind of a role before.

As an actor, I have always wanted to challenge myself with more, and this role gave me the opportunity to do so. The Girl On The Train will take the audiences on a dark journey trying to piece together the reality of who actually committed the crime and have them guessing the truth.
Director and Writer of The Girl On The Train, Ribhu Dasgupta said, “The book enticed me tremendously, and I am excited to have the opportunity to bring this version of the story to screens around the world.This film has been a real ride of emotion and passion for me. I am happy that the trailer will drop on Netflix and everyone will see a glimpse of the world we have created.”
