Prepare to embark on an inspiring yet thrilling journey as Jeremy Renner is ready to make some Rennervations! Set to premiere on 3rd May on Disney+ Hotstar, two-time Academy Award® nominee and Marvel superhero joins forces with a host of international celebrities in this four-part Original series. One of these episodes is based in India where Jeremy partners with none other than Bollywood icon and ‘Mission Impossible’ co-star, Anil Kapoor. Together, they voyage through the majestic state of Rajasthan to help a community facing a specific challenge that disproportionately affects children and impoverished communities.
Partnered with Uva Jagriti Sansthan (UJS), a grassroots organization based in Rajasthan, Jeremy Renner, Anil Kapoor and a local team of Indian fabricators and mechanics transform a decommissioned Indian jingle truck into a mobile water treatment plant, targeting communities and schools that lack clean drinking water. To stay true to the culture and people, showrunner/Executive Producer of the series, Patrick Costello brought Indian producer, Gaurav Dhingra (Jungle Book Entertainment) to help the production efforts and hire a local crew for this particular episode.
Anil Kapoor described working on ‘Rennervations’ with Jeremy Renner as an enriching experience. He said, “Jeremy is a gem of a person, he has poured his heart and soul into this project. I was so humbled to share this wonderful journey with him. The entire local crew that came together was also brilliant. It was such an enriching experience and I am grateful for it. Working with Jeremy is always a pleasure, and delivering the mobile water treatment facility made it all the more worthwhile.”
