Is Sushant Singh Rajput a better choice than Hrithik Roshan for Shekhar Kapur’s Paani?

With the Krissh 3 star dropping out of Kapur’s long delayed project, the Kai Po Che dude has bagged the plum Yash Raj Films assignment

Shekhar Kapur can’t stop smiling. The never-ending hunt for a male protagonist for his most ambitious project Paani is finally over! Close on the heels of his outstanding and realistic performance in Shuddh Desi Romance, Sushant Singh Rajput has been confirmed by both Kapur and Aditya Chopra as the lead hero of their movie Paani.

“Sushant is one of the most inspiring young actors to emerge out of India. It’s going to be an exciting director-actor collaboration,” said the excited Kapur. After numerous reports about Hrithik Roshan doing the film, then opting out of it, and then again being a part of the project, there was news about Anushka Sharma being paired with the honey-eyed actor. But Kapur denied Anushka was part of Paani. Yash Raj Films reportedly signed Rajput on after Kai Po Che released and after the success of Shuddh Desi Romance, Sushant’s first solo-hero film, comfirmed the choice of lead.

Paani is based in a future world where a young lover breaks all the rules and enters into the ensuing war over water resources. The film will have a strong Indian and Western star cast. Hmmm… after romancing two gorgeous beauties – Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor – in SDR, we wait to see which firang babe the lucky chap will woo in Paani. Any suggestions?

Considering YRF’s strong backing, Paani is said to be starting shoots by mid next year. Finally Shekhar’s dream project that he announced almost a decade ago could be taking shape. Good luck, Mr Kapur!
