Stewart is reported to have been offered a role as wealthy girl by director Shekhar Kapur and she surprisingly "gave the green signal, provided the terms and conditions are met." In the film, which will be made in English, she will be seen romancing Indian actor Hrithik Roshan.
Roshan's character reportedly will fall in love with Stewart's and they end up becoming star-crossed lovers. A source additionally dishes on the idea of the film, saying it is "a sort of a Romeo and Juliet story."
Shekhar himself refused to talk much about the film until everything is finalized, claiming "I can't speak of the cast on record until everything is in place. Too many times I've been accused of talking about projects that never happen." But he assures that "Paani" will start this year.
Kristen Stewart is currently waiting for the release of "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" in which she once again stars opposite Robert Pattinson. She is expected to reprise her role as Bella Swan in the latest installment, "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn".
