Normal for passion films like `Paani` to take time: Shekhar Kapur
New Delhi: Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, whose ambitious project ‘Paani’ has been in the making for many years now, says it`s easier to make sequels to his films than to work on "a passion film like `Paani.`"
"Quite normal for passion films like `Paani` to take time. These r films made despite many odds. `Gandhi` took 15 yrs (sic)," Kapur posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Though he has no immediate plans to work on sequels to ‘Elizabeth 2’ or ‘Mr.India,’ he added: "Far easier 2 make `Elizabeth 3` or `Mr.India 2`. Bt my heart lies in `Paani`."
‘Paani’ is a film on water wars, and shows how water becomes a precious commodity and creates a rift between communities.
"When I 1st announced Paani no 1 thght it was ab issue. Now suddenly every1 has woken up," added Kapur, who will begin shooting the movie in November.
‘Paani’ is expected to release in mid-2012.
