Makers of the film released its trailer in English and Hindi languages on social media. ‘The White Tiger’ is a social satire that explores themes like poverty, corruption, survival and class struggle in India.
The trailer unfolds from the point of view of Balram Halwai (Adarsh), who is narrating his rise from a poor villager to a successful entrepreneur. But his journey isn’t any rags to riches story. It, in fact, follows his highly ambitious plans and how he fulfils them. Balram, on his route to success, takes up the job of a driver for a US returned couple – Ashok (Rajkummar) and Pinky (Priyanka). His dutiful ways and social lessons towards how to be a good servant makes him indispensable to his masters. However, tables turn when one night, the couple tries to trap him to save themselves. How Balram ensures not just his freedom, but also a rebellion against the class system in India, forms the crux of the film.
