The reports were rife that Hrithik Roshan has been very excited to
play the lead role in filmmaker Shekhar Kapur's ambitious film
Though it was later said that Hrithik might not be cast in the
film, the latest buzz say Anushka Sharma might play the lead female
role in the flick.
A leading daily revealed that Anushka Sharma has been finalised
for Shekhar Kapur's Paani and Hrithik will play the male
lead. Reportedly, Paani is Shekhar Kapur's dream project,
which revolves around a future world where water wars have broken
out, and water is owned by international corporations who use
thirst as a weapon of control.
The poster of the film Paani will bear the message,
"2040 AD, when the well runs dry. We will realize the worth of
Paani." A while ago, Hrithik spoke extensively about Kapur and his
project Paani, "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," the actor added.
