Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Rajkummar Rao starrer The White Tiger has garnered a lot of appreciation from the critics as well as from the fans. Netflix's film is based on Aravind Adiga's book of the same name. It has been helmed by Ramin Bahrani. Apart from Rajkummar Rao and Priyanka Chopra, the film stars Adarsh Gourav in the lead role of Balram Halwai. Now recently, while speaking with India Today, Priyanka Chopra Jonas revealed why she desperately wanted to be part of this film co-starring Rajkummar.

Talking about how she pursued The White Tiger, Priyanka, who is also a producer on the film, has said that she remembers reading the book and it left a massive mark on her mind because it's so poetic and specific, at the same time. “There are so many little things from the book that we all remember. When my agents told me that this book is being made into a movie and would I be interested, and I jumped on it and I pursued the film actually. I was like I have to be a part of this movie,” the global star added.

 She further explained that she knew it from the beginning that the film is not about her character; it is about Balram's character. But she loved the idea of taking the stories based out of India, which she can completely relate with, to the global audience. “Like the book did. It sold more outside India than it did inside India. I feel that it was that story and I want to be attached to stuff like that. So I actively pursued it and I went after it,” Priyanka stated.

Later, she met the director of the film and told him that she would love to be able to help push the film for it to get the biggest it can be and get the maximum attention that they can provide it. And that was the reason she got behind it.
