Priyanka Chopra’s Dramatic New Flick Is Already the #2 Movie on Netflix After Only 3 Days

It was just over a month ago that we received the first look at Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s new movie, The White Tiger, and predicted that it was going to be an immediate hit on Netflix. Turns out, we were right, because after only three days of streaming on the platform, the film has landed a spot in the top 10 most popular movies.

Directed by Ramin Bahrani, the drama is currently holding the #2 spot on Netflix’s most-watched list and is based on the New York Times bestseller and 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name.

The film’s official synopsis reads: “Balram Halwai narrates his epic and darkly humorous rise from poor villager to successful entrepreneur in modern India. Cunning and ambitious, our young hero jockeys his way into becoming a driver for Ashok and Pinky, who has just returned from America. Society has trained Balram to be one thing—a servant—so he makes himself indispensable to his rich masters. But after a night of betrayal, he realizes the corrupt lengths they will go to trap him and save themselves. On the verge of losing everything, Balram rebels against a rigged and unequal system to rise up and become a new kind of master.”

In addition to Chopra Jonas, the film also stars Adarsh Gourav, Rajkummar Rao and Perrie Kapernaros. And did we mention this is the second of the 38-year-old’s Netflix projects to land a spot in the top 10? Chopra’s other flick, We Can Be Heroes, currently holds the number eight spot.

We can’t wait to watch.
