Woah, big news for Sushant Singh Rajput fans: the actor has been signed on to play the lead role in Shekhar Kapur‘s Paani! Considering that Mr Kapur has been working on this ambitious project for years – literally, years and years – it’s quite the achievement for a young actor like Sushant to bag the role. It also makes sense, since YRF picked up the film in 2012, and apparently also roped Sushant in for a movie deal post the success of Kai Po Che.
Sushant is one of the most inspiring young actors to emerge out of India. It’s going to be an exciting director-actor collaboration with him on Paani.
Paani is set thirty-five years into the future, where a war has broken out over the lack of water supply. It’s a tall order, but do you think Sushant can deliver?
