After Aamir Khan, Priyanka Chopra has taken up the cause of water crisis. The actress is creating awareness about water crisis through her production — Purple Pebble Pictures (PPP), which announced the details of their latest Marathi film production. Titled Paani, the film, helmed by first time director Adinath Kothare, is based on a true story that deals with an insurmountable crisis affecting an entire region.
