Hollywood sweetheart in Paani?

The makers of the film are in advanced talks with Jennifer Lawrence to star in Shekhar Kapur's magnum opus

Sarita A Tanwar

Tired of hearing about Bollywood actresses making a debut in Hollywood? Now there's a twist in the tale. If all goes well, Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence might star in a Bollywood film. The Oscar winning actress has been approached to be part of Shekhar Kapur's Paani.
The project is being produced by Yashraj Films and is based on a future world where wars over water have broken out. Paani tells the story of a future dystopia in which water is owned by international corporations, who use thirst as a weapon of control, while the wealthy squander it decadently. The story centers on young lovers who defy the rules and try to make the water flow back to its people. The film's cast will have both Indian and Western actors.
According to an insider, "Paani will be an expensive film. The budget would be close to '150 crore. To justify that kind of a money, the film will have to do good business all around the world, and not just in India. Getting someone like Jennifer will ensure the film attracts eyeballs internationally as well." It was always clear that they needed a Hollywood actress for this role. What worked in Jennifer's favour are both her popularity and her acting prowess.
In October, Kapur was in LA doing a screen test for Paani and he tweeted, "Full day of auditions for Paani in LA. Range of talent in young actresses is quite amazing and even the biggest stars are not shy of auditioning."
Newcomer Sushant Singh Rajput will be paired opposite Jennifer. Singh stepped in after Hrithik Roshan walked out of the film.

J.Law is the IT girl of Hollywood at the moment. So I'm not surprised at the number of people that throw her name around. I doubt this is true.

I hope its true. I am such a big fan of hers ever since I watched Silver Linings Playbook. I have seen her every film from Winter's Bone to American Hustle. Two of my favorites in a film will be unbelievable.  

The news is not impossible. Shekhar Kapur has worked with a lot of big names of Hollywood. Plus, JLaw does like to do Indie-films and she has starred in films with fresh talent. A film in India should be exciting for her. 
...and YRF is not the only producer in the film
