Earlier, Parineeti had expressed that she hopes people notice the uniqueness in her performance in The Girl On The Train. She said, “Emily’s performance is a super reference point for me. She has brought to life a character from paper and she was a genius at it. I will try to add my own rendition to the character that people have seen and loved so much. As an actor, I have always wanted to challenge myself and enjoy acting. This role gives me an opportunity to do just that and showcase my versatility even more. I hope it will be interesting for people to see how Emily and I performed the same role with our individual uniqueness.”
