Ayesha KapurShekhar Kapoor who returns to feature-film direction after seven years with the much-anticipated ‘Paani’ has finally found his female lead.

And the girl who gets the prized role in Shekhar's futuristic love story is none other than Ayesha Kapur, that incredible bundle of talent who at age 11 ripped the screen apart in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ‘Black’.

9 years later Ayesha, now a stunning 20-year old, is back to claim fame as a leading lady. In-between she did an endearing role as a Kashmiri girl in Piyush Jha's ‘Sikandar’.

Sushant plays a boy from the lower city who steals into the higher city where he meets Ayesha Kapur."
