Every day, she takes the train to London and passes by the former husband’s house, who now lives with his new family – wife Anna and daughter Evie. In the middle of her train journey, she gets fixated with another couple, who she names Jason and Jess in her mind. The couple represents a perfect relationship that Rachel missed out on and always aspired to have.

Parineeti on Her Role:

“The Girl On The Train’ was an entirely different experience for me as I have never played this kind of role before. Getting into the character of Meera Kapoor and working closely with (director) Ribhu (Dasgupta) to bring her to life was an immense learning experience for me. 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.”
