By now all of us know one of Sushant Singh Rajput’s films, Paani, with Shekhar Kapur was shelved. But did you know, it was Hrithik Roshan who was supposed to star in Paani first? Yes! For those who don’t know, Hrithik Roshan was replaced by Sushant Singh Rajput in Paani. The film was then helmed by Shekhar Kapur and produced by Yash Raj Films. However, things didn’t work out as per plan and it got shelved. When Sushant ended his life on June 14, Shekhar Kapur recently Tweeted that Paani will be made one day and it will be dedicated to the late actor.
Now we got our hands on a throwback video, where Hrithik Roshan is seen reacting to the reports of him being replaced by Sushant. In 2013, when Hrithik Roshan had addressed the media during Krrish 3 promotions, he was asked about him being replaced in Paani by SSR. First Hrithik can be seen walking away and then reluctantly saying, “How do I know?” Speaking about working with Shekhar Kapur, Roshan had also told the media back then that it has been his lifelong dream to work with Kapur. He had said, “Working with Shekhar Kapur is a lifelong dream of mine so Paani is a dream and I hope it happens.”
Yesterday, Shekhar Kapur took to social media to announce that Paani will be made one day and will be dedicated to Sushant. He had tweeted, “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.”
He had clearly stated that Paani will be made with partners that walk in humility, not in arrogance. (ALSO READ: Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur And Writer Apurva Asrani Blast R Balki For Saying, ‘Find Me A Better Actor Than Alia Bhatt Or Ranbir Kapoor’; Give Balki A List Of Actors)
