Since Saif Ali Khan remade Chef, many others in Bollywood have been inspired to do such films. It was reported that Judwaa 2 actress, Jacqueline Fernandez has been roped in as the protagonist of the official remake of the psychological mystery drama 'The Girl On The Train'.

Director Ribhu Dasgupta who has helmed movies like Te3n, starring Amitabh Bachchan confirmed Jacqueline as his leading lady. The film is an adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ bestseller novel by the same name where Jacqueline will be playing the role of Emily Blunt in the remake. Ribhu told a tabloid “Jackie has come on board as the protagonist. I have been looking forward to working with her and this seemed like a perfect project to collaborate. While there was an ensemble cast in the novel, our film will revolve around her character. You get together to make a film when people think alike in many ways and when I had met her I discovered we were on the same page,”

Getting to the project preparations, Ribhu added that the film will be set in a small town but the makers are yet to figure whether they will be filming in India or abroad. Ribhu and his team will start prepping up with Jacqueline by the year-end and will begin filming soon.

The original movie is about an alcoholic divorcee, played by the talented Emily Blunt who gets fascinated by a couple staying by the railway tracks in a house as she commutes daily. After a few days, the wife goes missing and the husband becomes the prime suspect and Emily is immediately drawn to their lives. Meanwhile Jacqueline is busy with some of the best projects and will be seen opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in Drive and with Salman Khan in Race 3.
