Mumbai: Yash Raj Films today announced an expansion of their partnership with Imax corporation to release Shekhar Kapur directed Paani apart from two other films.
The two companies have extended their partnership to three after first inking a deal to release the upcoming action thriller 'Dhoom 3' this winter.
"Since announcing the Imax release of 'Dhoom 3', we've seen tremendous anticipation building among Indian moviegoers around this first-ever Imax release of a Hindi feature film, and we're excited to add to this excitement with two more of our highly anticipated films, including our most ambitious one, 'Paani'," said Aditya Chopra, Chairman, Yash Raj Films Pvt Ltd.
"We are delighted to build on our relationship with Yash Raj Films, which has been an integral part of India's entertainment business for over 40 years, and deliver on our strategy to expand our Bollywood film slate," said Greg Foster, Chairman and President, Imax Entertainment at the ongoing FICCI Frames conference.
'Paani' is based in a future world where wars over water have broken out. Water is now owned by International Corporations who use thirst as a weapon of control.
In one such future city, a young love story breaks all the rules and in the ensuing war, water flows back to its people. The film will have a strong Indian and Western star cast, headed by a young leading actor from India and a young leading actress from the west, a statement from Yash Raj studio said.
The film will be produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by Kapur. It will be shot in India and overseas. Oscar-winner A R Rahman has given music to 'Paani'.
