With the backdrop of water scarcity, "Jal" is the story of Bakka, a person gifted with a special ability to find water in the desert. It tells a complex and intriguing story of love, relationships, enmity, deceit and circumstances that bring about the dark side of human character.

"For me the challenge was to learn the dialects of the people living there (in the Rann of Kutch), their way of living and camel riding. There is a whole action sequence of camel riding in the film," Purab said here Tuesday at the trailer launch of the film.

"I think the most difficult part for me was the physical nuances of the character," he added.

He says he "worked hard to get into the skin of my character" and added: "I stayed with the people of that region for a week or 10 days. I even spent one or two days with their camels in the forest."

His efforts did help him.

"Through this, I got to know them (the people of the Rann of Kutch) better and it became easy to play (one of) them," said the 35-year-old.

Directed by Girish Malik, "Jal" features Kirti Kulhari and Tannishtha Chatterjee, among others.
