Kapur's Paani finally set to flow

Celebrated Indian director Shekhar Kapur is finally to go ahead with his ambitious futuristic tale Paani after teaming up with leading production studio Yash Raj Films.

Kapur introduced the film to international investors at Cannes in 2010 but had until now not been able to complete the finance for what was previously estimated as a $30 million project.

Production is set to begin in mid-2013 in India and overseas locations, with YRF boss Aditya Chopra producing and multiple Oscar-winner AR Rahman delivering the music score. "The film will have a strong Indian and Western star cast, headed by a young leading actor from India and a young leading actress from the west," YRF said in a statement. Indian star Hrithik Roshan has been frequently tipped for the role.

The film is set in the near future in a megacity at a time when water wars have broken out. The story follows the daughter of a water corporation boss who is kidnapped by a 'water warrior' from the poverty-ridden 'lower city'.

"I have been preparing for this film for a long time, but always wanted an Indian partner that has the same passion for the film as I do and in Adi [Chopra] I have finally found that. It's a huge production that demands futuristic sets and large action pieces," said Kapur in the statement.
