He told the Hindustan Times: "Where do these stories come from? Nothing has been confirmed with Danny as yet.

"Whether it is here in Mumbai or in the West, I usually work with new people. The cast factor has never stopped from making my films the way I want to. Let's see. I first need to be psychologically ready to shoot.

"I'd shoot Paani anywhere where I'd get the intellectual and geographical space to build my city of a water-challenged future. At the moment, we're exploring the modalities and the feasibility of the venue for shooting."

The director revealed this week that he's interested in making a sequel to the 1987 hit Mr India.

Sridevi and Anil Kapoor are expected to reprise their leading roles from the original film.

Kapur admitted recently that he finds making films in Bollywood stifling and creatively "limiting".
