For a long time reports were doing the rounds that Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan is being considered or being finalized for Shekhar Kapur's dream project PAANI. But after it was confirmed that Hrithik is not doing PAANI, the hunt for the male lead was on from quite some time. However, now the lead for the film is finalized. Sushant Singh Rajput, who shot to fame with KAI PO CHE! and SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE, is playing the main lead in the said film.


Close on the heels of his outstanding and realistic performance in SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE, both Shekhar Kapur and Aditya Chopra had no hesitation in confirming Sushant Singh Rajput to play the lead in PAANI.

Speaking about the actor, Shekhar Kapur said, ''Sushant is one of the most inspiring young actors to emerge out of India. It's going to be exciting director-actor collaboration with him on PAANI.''

The film is based in a future world 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. The film will have a strong Indian and Western star cast. Sushant will be joined by a young leading actress from the west.

The film, Produced by Aditya Chopra and Directed by Shekhar Kapur, will be shot in India and overseas. Music is by A. R. Rahman.

PAANI goes on floor mid-2014.
