Live Virtual Q&A with Ramin Bahrani, Filmmaker of THE WHITE TIGER

Monday, January 25 at 7:00 PM EST

This event is free to the public. Watch it live on our YouTube channel.

In THE WHITE TIGER, Balram Halwai (Adarsh Gourav) narrates his epic and darkly humorous rise from poor villager to successful entrepreneur in modern India. Cunning and ambitious, our young hero jockeys his way into becoming a driver for Ashok (Rajkummar Rao) and Pinky (Priyanka Chopra Jonas), who have just returned from America. Society has trained Balram to be one thing — a servant — so he makes himself indispensable to his rich masters. But after a night of betrayal, he realizes the corrupt lengths they will go to trap him and save themselves. On the verge of losing everything, Balram rebels against a rigged and unequal system to rise up and become a new kind of master. Based on the New York Times bestseller and 2008 Man Booker Prize-winning novel.

THE WHITE TIGER will be available on Netflix beginning January 22.


“Exhilarating. A sprawling Technicolor melodrama about class and destiny set in modern-day India… steeps a classic Horatio Alger tale in kinetic 21st-century dazzle and pop.”
