And finally, The Midas touch Film Maker broke his silence and confronted “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. I finally found that in Aditya Chopra. It’s a huge production that demands futuristic sets and large action pieces. With Yash Raj Films, I have found a perfect home for Paani.” As far as the star cast goes, Hrithik Roshan was always on Shekhar Kapur’s mind. The film has music by A.R.Rahmanand it 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.
