Rajkummar Rao has spoken about his experience working with Priyanka Chopra on upcoming film, The White Tiger.

The White Tiger stars Rajkummar and Priyanka as supporting actors to Adarsh Gourav. The film is directed by Ramin Bahrani and is based on Man Booker Prize-winning novel by the same name by Aravind Adiga.

Speaking about working with Priyanka in the movies, Rajkummar called her 'phenomenal'. "Priyanka is phenomenal. She is a very chilled out person, a global star who never made us feel that she was the biggest star on our set. I have always been a big admirer of her work. It's fun to work with great actors as it enhances your performance and Priyanka did just that to me. She even helped me out in my scenes. I look forward to working with her more and hopefully, it will happen soon," he told The Times of India in an interview.

Talking about the film, he said, "TWT’s story is universal and people will relate to the characters. I knew the story pretty well, so my reference was always the script once I was signed for the film. It’s very detailed and all the characters are very well etched out. I have my own process of building a character which I apply in most of my films."

The White Tiger has already released in select theatres in the US and will start streaming on Netflix from January 22. It revolves around the ambitious driver for a rich Indian family, who uses his wit and cunning to escape from poverty and become an entrepreneur.
