Directed by debutant Adinath Kothare, Paani, will be Purple Pebble Pictures' fourth Marathi venture. The movie reportedly draws inspiration from true events and is based on the problem of water scarcity in Nagdarwadi, which is a drought prone area of Maharashtra. The film will feature Rucha Vaidya, Subodh Bhave, Kishor Kadam and Girish Joshi.
For Priyanka's first Marathi production Ventilator, director Rajesh Mapuskar won a National Award. She has also backed Bhojpuri, Assamese and Sikkimese films as a producer.
