If sources are to be believed then the ‘Harry Potter’ famed Hollywood beauty Emma Watson will soon make an entry on Bollywood screen. Buzz is that the actress has been roped in by Shekhar Kapur for his magum opus ‘Paani’, starring Sushant Singh Rajput.
Only recently the film hit headlines, when it was confirmed that Hollywood icon John Trovolta has been brought on board.
Being in the making for nearly thirteen years, ‘Paani’ is expected to start its shooting finally in early August, this year. In an interview, Kapur was quoted saying that “the script, screenplay and dialogue have been locked completely and the pre-production work is going on in full swing.”

Emma Watson will be up for another busy year taking the lead role in the fantasy franchise “The Queen of the Tearling” to be produced by the “Harry Potter” makers, Warner Bros and producer David Heyman.
Following the hit Biblical movie, “Noah” where she starred as Ila, Noah’s (Russell Crowe) daughter-in-law, the 24-year-old star reportedly signed up to do the “The Queen of the Tearling” trilogy, the movie adaptations of the books of the same title by Erika Johansen.
According to the New York Post, the book is partly inspired by a speech delivered by President Barack Obama while he was still senator way back in 2007. Johansen was said to receive a hefty seven-figure deal in advance for the rights to a movie franchise.
“The Queen of the Tearling” is starting to create buzz and being compared to George R.R. Martin’s “Game of Thrones.” The upcoming movie is also touted to be the next “Hunger Games” and to follow the worldwide success of other blockbuster fantasies like the “Divergent,” “Avatar” and the “Percy Jackson” series, among others. Whether the ending of the book will be split into two movies—which is likely a trend—is unknown until the “Tearling’s” first franchise will hit the big screen.
Emma Watson is reportedly planning a huge celebration to mark the end of her days as a student.
The 23-year-old actress has studied at Brown University in Rhode Island, also spending some time learning at UK’s prestigious Oxford University.
She is now gearing up to celebrate the end of her student days, with her parents due to jet to the US to see her graduate. While she’ll likely commemorate her degree with them, the star is also planning a special bash for her friends.
According to British newspaper The Sun, Emma will hold a huge Mexican-themed party for everyone she knows. Although the exact details remain a closely-guarded secret at the moment, it is known that a Tequila drinking contest will make up part of the night.
It’s not the first time Emma’s love of Mexico has been reported. When she turned 23 on April 15 last year, her friends threw her a piñata-themed party. Pals crammed sweets into 23 of the papier-mâché creations, one for each year of the actress’ life, which were also decorated with major events from the Harry Potter star’s life.
“Emma was gobsmacked when she arrived at the party to see all the piñatas. There was everything from her as a child, and as Hermione in the Harry Potter films, to her in the Chanel advert a couple of years ago,” a source smiled at the time.
“They had even gone to the effort of stuffing a few of the piñatas with sweets and treats, so Emma could smash them open.”
EMMA Watson has come a long way!
The actress hadn’t acted professionally before she landed the role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films aged 9 — so she wasn’t that confident about her career.
“I’d done two tiny plays when I was, like, 6 and 8, but I wasn’t driven to act,” she said.
“I wasn’t doing Oscar acceptance speeches into a hairbrush. I took a Beanie Baby to my first Harry Potter audition.
“After Harry Potter, all that mattered was university.
“I didn’t even know if I wanted to be an actress.
“It took me a year or two to find my confidence. You can see that by the choices I’m making, from Sofia Coppola [The Bling Ring], then jumping to a biblical epic [Noah].
“There are no restrictions on me, which is a relief.”
