And a huge star to boot. And years ago, as I sat down to write Paani, I had one image in mind to play the male lead. Hrithik Roshan. The character I described in the script was completely Hrithik. His manner, his inner world, his conflicts…were all Hrithik. I sat with AR Rahman and as we composed music together, I always would ask him to imagine Hrithik,” stories India Today.
Shekhar Kapur continued, “But then the years passed. I got involved with Hollywood. Other projects ensnared me away from the project that was my deepest passion…Paani. And as the years passed, and the script kept evolving.. changing. And Hrithik changed to…To what Hrithik is today. The Super Hero. The man who is the protector, the man who can take on the world single handedly. The man who knows he can take on the world singlehandedly. Hrithik evolved into Krish. And I realized I had left it too late…So while I lost the chance to cast Hrithik in Paani, I hope that he would still agree to be in one of my next film,”
