Revealed: The actress opposite Hrithik Roshan in Paani
Just recently (November 2012 to be precise), Yash Raj Films had announced that they would join hands with Shekhar Kapur for his most ambitious project till date, Paani. Word had it that Aditya Chopra would produce the venture and that it would be directed by Kapur with music by A. R. Rahman no less. Unconfirmed reports also stated that Hrithik Roshan would play the lead, while the hunt for an actress to be cast opposite him was underway.
Initially, there had been murmurs that Twilight star Kristen Stewart would feature opposite Roshan, but today a report states that it in fact it is Anushka Sharma that’s bagged the coveted part.
“Yes, Anushka Sharma has been finalised for Shekhar Kapur’s Paani. Hrithik Roshan is the leading man in the film," said a source to Business of Cinema.
The film is a love story set in the future where wars over water have broken out and where all water is now owned by greedy corporations who use thirst as a weapon of control.
There were rumours of Sharma bagging a part in Steven Spielberg's next to be shot in India earlier this week too. If these reports are true, then Sharma is on quite the roll.
