Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Adarsh Gourav on haves, have-nots, and The White Tiger

In Netflix’s new literary adaptation The White Tiger, Adarsh Gourav plays Balram, a driver who struggles against what he calls “the rooster coop” of India’s caste system. As he puts it in the film, he’s one of the people with a “small belly” looking to somehow fatten up—both literally and figuratively.

The A.V. Club talked to Gourav and White Tiger co-star/producer Priyanka Chopra Jonas about India’s haves and have-nots, as well as the ethical conundrum posed when someone who has nothing is abused by someone who’s always had everything.

The White Tiger hits Netflix on Friday, January 22.

Marah Eakin is the Executive Producer of all A.V. Club Video And Podcasts. She is also a Cleveland native and heiress to the country's largest collection of antique and unique bedpans and urinals.
