Having worked with international stars like Cate Blanchett and Heath Ledger on his movies, internationally acclaimed Indian filmmaker Shekhar Kapur has now pitched a role to Oscar-award winner Christoph Waltz for his long pending project Paani.
“(It was) just one of those days where I was going to drudge around complaining to myself about not believing in the scene I just wrote for Paani…I sat and it suddenly came to me. Something I have been wanting to do for long. Very long. I picked the phone and called my agent and said I want to speak to Christoph Waltz, the amazing actor that won the Oscar for his performance in Inglourious Basterds,” Kapur posted on his blog www.shekharkapur.com/blog on Sunday.
“…And so that evening I spoke to Christoph and pitched him Paani. I told him the story and the world of Paani. I told him about the character I wanted him to play. And he said he loved it. And we decided to meet to see how we can work it out etc.,” he added.
