The trailer for The White Tiger is as serious as it is dazzling. It draws a stark commentary on India's class divide. There are moments of dark humour, of course. The narrator, explaining his poverty, at one point says, "I was trapped. And don't believe for a second there is a million-rupee game show you can win to get out of it." A comment on the Oscar-winning film, Slumdog Millionaire. However, the final shot of the trailer shows that this slumdog will also become a millionaire.

Priyanka looks dazzling as the Delhite Pinky Madam. And we all know how perfectly Priyanka can slip into the character of a rich woman. We have seen her transition from middle-class to riches in The Sky Is Pink. She also played the rich spoilt brat in Waqt. Then, of course, we have Dil Dhadakne Do, where it almost seemed like she played one of the Ambanis.
The White Tiger will have a limited theatrical release in December, followed by a release on the streamer in January. The limited theatrical release will get the movie a chance to be nominated for the Oscars 2021, if the makers are looking for that. The Oscar buzz for Priyanka has already begun. She also serves as the executive producer for the film.
