Shekhar Kapur's Paani to go on floors next year

Last updated on: December 01, 2012 12:55 IST

Shekhar KapoorShekhar Kapur has joined hands with Yash Raj Films to make his ambitious, long-delayed project, Paani.

"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 Adi (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."

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 city, a young love story breaks all the rules and in the ensuing war, water flows back to its people.

Music will be composed by A R Rahman, and it is slated to go on the floors mid-2013.
