“Day 1 table read for #TheWhiteTiger with this incredibly talented team. Can’t wait for shoot,” Chopra captioned a montage of pictures with the crew.

“Can’t wait to start #TheWhiteTiger with these supremely talented people,” tweeted Rao.

The film, which will also mark the acting debut of Adarsh Gourav, will be directed by Ramin Bahrani of ‘Fahrenheit 451’ and ‘99 Homes’ fame. Bahrani is also writing the screenplay.

Adiga’s book follows the extraordinary journey of a self-made man from tea-shop worker in a village to successful entrepreneur in a big city. Murder, love and deceit become the ultimate price for ambition.

Filming for ‘The White Tiger’ will begin later this year in India.
