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.
