If ever made, ‘Paani’ will be a dedication to Sushant, tweets Shekhar Kapur

Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur said that he will dedicate his film ‘Paani’, if ever made, to late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Shekhar’s film Paani was shelved after Yash Raj Films, with whom he worked in Shuddh Desi Romance and Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, reportedly backed out of the project. Sushant was finalized for the film as main lead.

Shekhar, in a tweet on Wednesday, said that he wants this film to be made with partners that walk in humility, not in arrogance. His tweet read, “If you want to journey with the Gods, or your creativity, you have to walk each step in devotion, in humility. God willing, Paani will get made one day. If it does, I will dedicate it to Sushant. But it has to be made with partners that walk in humility, not in arrogance.”

Shekhar had earlier revealed that when Paani was shelved, Sushant was “devasted” and he “cried a lot”.

Shekhar, in an old interview, had said, “I was devastated as I was passionate about the project. I had it with me for 15 years. I was working on it for so long. It was draining, it was art. It was not like if not this, I will make something else. When I saw Sushant, I felt he is the guy.”

Sushant Singh allegedly committed suicide at his Bandra residence on June 14, 2020. Mumbai Police is investigating the cause of his death and is drilling every possible angle in the case.
