Shekhar Kapur is hopeful of making his long-in-the-planning Paani and dedicating it to Sushant Singh Rajput. The filmmaker had signed the late actor, but the Yash Raj production got shelved. "It has to be made with partners who walk in humility, not in arrogance," Kapur posted. He had announced the film, dealing with water scarcity, almost 20 years ago.
