Priyanka Chopra announced her fourth production venture in Marathi language, titled Paani. Chopra’s film production company Purple Pebble Pictures is determined to make content driven regional films and their next project stays true to that principle. The 35-year-old actress, who is backing the film under her production banner Purple Pebble Pictures, took to Twitter to share the news. The film, to be directed Adinath Kothare, is based on a true story and explores the contemporary water crisis.

“This is what I had envisioned when starting @PurplePebblePic… A platform for good stories and new talent. #Paani is special because it’s based on a true story and deals with a very topical issue.  Welcome aboard @adinathkothare and team… Let’s create something special together! #Marathi,” Priyanka tweeted.
