It was rumoured that Jennifer Lawrence might make her Bollywood debut in Shekhar Kapur’s Paani with Sushant Singh Rajput

Jennifer Lawrence is one of the most well-known performers of her generation

Jennifer Lawrence, one of the most well-known performers of her generation, will be 32 on Monday, August 15. She was only 22 when she received the Best Actress Oscar, and during the following several years, she went on to star in some of the most well-liked and financially successful movies. Did you know, though, that Jennifer was rumoured to be making her Bollywood debut quite early in her career, and that too opposite Sushant Singh Rajput?

Paani by Shekhar Kapur comes to mind. The filmmaker had the idea for the grandiose science fiction adventure movie years ago. Things started to move for the movie around the turn of the century, and the filmmaker announced in 2013 that Sushant Singh Rajput had agreed to play the male lead. The next year, rumours surfaced that Sushant and Jennifer Lawrence, who had recently won an Oscar, had been paired in the movie. Naturally, the revelation caused a great deal of enthusiasm among movie enthusiasts.

Paani will be a pricey movie

Paani was planned to take place in a world without water and centre on a young couple negotiating the hostile environment. While the news of Sushant’s addition had been confirmed by both the actor and the director, the information regarding Jennifer, who was 23 at the time, was never validated. Paani will be a pricey movie. It would have a budget of about Rs. 150 crore. The movie will need to perform well globally, not just in India, to justify spending that kind of money. Having a star like Jennifer will guarantee that the movie is seen overseas as well.

Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t in the movie

Less than a week later, Shekhar put an end to all rumours when he said Jennifer wasn’t in the movie. She hadn’t even been approached, according to him. “No one has contacted Jennifer Lawrence about Paani. On January 8, 2014, Shekhar tweeted, “Just clearing up the rumours.

Paani was ultimately never produced. After three months of planning and pre-production work, the movie’s production company, Yash Raj Films, decided not to proceed. In an Instagram Live interview with Manoj Bajpayee in 2020, a month after Sushant’s passing, Shekhar discussed the movie’s cancellation and Sushant’s response. He cried a lot when he realised he wouldn’t be in the movie when it was shelved. And I sobbed. Because I was so emotionally and deeply involved with it, I would cry every time he sobbed, he added.

After starring in the X-Men and Hunger Games movies, Jennifer went on to continue performing in those series. She also starred in movies like Mother and Joy, for which she was nominated for her third and fourth Oscars. After taking a break from performing in 2019, the performer made a comeback in the parody Don’t Look Up, which also starred Leonardo DiCaprio. The psychological thriller Causeway, which has its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, will feature her in the lead role.
