The film 'Paani' is based in futuristic Mumbai where wars over water have broken out.
Yash Raj Films biggest project ever ‘Paani‘ has been talked about for some time. It is reported that actor Hrithik Roshan, has been approached to play the lead in Shekhar Kapur’s ambitious film.
Hrithik said: “I would just say that working with Shekhar Kapur is a lifelong dream of mine. ’Paani’ is a dream and I hope it happens.”
“I am looking forward to working with Mr. Shekhar Kapur and apart from work, just being with that man, in his presence, I feel comforted.” – Hrithik said at the opening of new Whistling Woods acting academy. Aditya Chopra is said to have made sure most of his staff at the Yash Raj Films are now working on ‘Paani‘.
It is also said that YRF is putting at least 200 crore into the film. This would indeed make it the most expensive film ever to be made in Indian cinema.
The film is based in futuristic Mumbai where wars over water have broken out. Water is now owned by international corporations who use thirst as a weapon of control. In one such future city, a young love story breaks all the rules and in the ensuing war, water flows back to its people.
Hrithik was last seen in ‘Agneepath‘ and is currently working on ‘Krrish 3’.
