Netflix: Where was The White Tiger filmed?

This is highlighted by The Cinemaholic, which includes that filming wrapped in the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi in December 2019, before the pandemic hit.
The union territory includes New Delhi, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Gurgaon and Noida, with such notable landmarks as Parliament House, Supreme Court, India Gate, Rashtrapati Bhavan, The Secretariat Building, and the Lotus Temple.
A number of notable films have been shot in Delhi, including Dev.D, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Delhi-6, Jobs, Eat Pray Love, Wazir, Million Dollar Arm and Rand De Basanti.

Ramin Bahrani on The White Tiger
In conversation with the Radio Times, the movie’s director opened up about his decision to cast a fresh face, revealing that he turned down some established stars for the part of Balram: “I had an opportunity to talk with a lot of actors, stars that you might know, Bollywood stars who are all incredible. “
He added: “But at a certain point, while I was in India, I felt that the lead actor should be from India and preferably unknown. I just felt it matched the character and the story of an underdog.”
Addressing what Adarsh brought to the role, Ramin said:
“I didn’t want to see a rich successful actor playing the part of that underclass underdog who’s going to do something crazy in the film. And Adarsh just blew me away in the audition… He has this great winning smile, he’s very charming and you like him immediately. But if you don’t pay attention and you look at him again he’s got a laser on you and you don’t know what he might do – and I needed that duality.”
He also described the newcomer as being “really inspiring on set”.
