I was crying and angry while watching it.” Some hours later, Priyanka Chopra responded. “So happy you enjoyed it,” she tweeted back to Cardi B. And exchange of emojis followed. Cardi B, among the most influential female rappers of all time, shot to fame with the hit single Bodak Yellow.

Cardi B isn’t the only famous fan to have given The White Tiger a shout-out – Priyanka’s husband Nick Jonas has given both her and the film more than one. “The movie is unreal and my wife Priyanka Chopra is exceptional in it,” Nick wrote in an Instagram Story. In a separate tweet, Nick wrote: “So incredibly proud of my wife Priyanka Chopra for her work as both an actor and a producer on this movie. Everyone, do yourself a favor and go watch this movie right now! Congrats to the entire cast and crew and creative team.”


Nick’s father Paul Kevin Jonas Sr also shared a message on Instagram urging cine-goers to watch The White Tiger: “Everyone go see this powerful movie starring our wonderful daughter-in-law.”

The White Tiger is a tale of poverty and privilege, the former represented by Balram Halwai, a driver forced to take the blame for his employer’s hit-and-run; privilege is represented by the wealthy family for whom he works. Adarsh Gourav stars as Balram Halwai, the ‘white tiger’ of the title; Priyanka Chopra is cast as Pinky, wife of Balram’s employer Ashok and the person at the wheel at the time of the hit-and-run. Rajkummar Rao plays her husband, Ashok.

Directed by Ramin Bahrani, The White Tiger is now streaming on Netflix.
