"He has recently completed Detective Byomkesh Bakshi and is deep in preparations for Paani given the scale of the film," said his spokesperson. Rajput started his acting journey as a TV star with Pavitra Rishta before moving to Bollywood with films like Shuddh Desi Romance and Kai Po Che.

Kapur's long-gestating project is set in a futuristic world where water is controlled by multinational companies. Two lovers spark a war in their bid to bring water back to people. The film is being produced by Yash Raj Films for a 2015 release. Black actor Ayesha Kapoor has reportedly been finalised as the female lead.
