While Shekhar Kapur’s dream project Paani is still on hold, the filmmaker is now focusing on an altogether new venture to be penned by Juhi Chaturvedi, the writer of Vicky Donor.
Shekhar loved Vicky Donor and was very impressed by the way Juhi had written the film. He then met up with Juhi and she agreed to write a film for Shekhar. Juhi has already started work on the film and is expected to complete writing this script by the end of the year. Apparently, the film is a social drama based in a rural area in Rajasthan.
Shekhar will be directing the film himself and the film will go on floors in 2013. He is also in talks with NDFC to produce the film.
Currently, Juhi is already committed to three projects. One with Ram Mirchandani’s Rampage Motion Pictures, the others with Shoojit Sircar’s Rising Sun Films and John Abraham‘s J A Productions respectively.
Shekhar Kapur is expected to start work on Paani after the completion of this film.
