Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur says "Paani", the project he announced 11 years ago, needs backing of a strong producer to see the light of day.
The director-producer, who has dabbled in Bollywood and Hollywood films, last helmed "Bandit Queen" in 1994. Since then, he worked on a couple of international projects.
Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra first tweeted, #paani ... Waiting for the maestro to begin Paani."
To which Kapur replied, "To do 'Paani' in India, I need a really strong producer with a global vision and who believes in what the film is about."
The sci-fi film will star "Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!" actor Sushant Singh Rajput in the leading role.
