The Dharavi Project, an initiative by Universal Music, will fund the expansion of a music and dance school in Dharavi, Asia's biggest slum, which featured as the backdrop of Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.
Shekhar Kapur's most ambitious project 'Paani', which has been delayed by almost a decade, is yet to go on floors but the filmmaker and music composer AR Rahman are hopeful that things will be in place soon. 'Paani' will be produced by Aditya Chopra and will star Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role.
Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman and ace filmmaker Shekhar Kapur have come together to discover and nurture talents from Dharavi, the world's largest slum, besides helping them showcase it to the world.
