Paani to hit floor next year

Shekhar Kapur’s long pending project Paani will go on floors in April next year, says the filmmaker.

‘I am right now doing the organisation-related work before I start actual filming in April next year,’ said Kapur on the sidelines of a Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) summit in the capital Tuesday.

Paani, based on water wars, will be produced by Danny Boyle of Slumdog Millionaire fame. Its music will be composed by A.R. Rahman.

The project was formally announced at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival in 2010.

Shekhar Kapur feels that Indian filmmakers tend to misjudge the audience and this eventually leads to compromising on the content of the films.

‘We need to merge to compete with  the world and not isolate rather create infrastructure,’ he added.
