Let take an example of the object around which light could bend,like water flowing around the stone in its path. Would such thing form a shadow? Justify your statement. Why?

Shadows are formed when we place any opaque object in the path of light. As because light travel in straight lines,the light cannot reach those parts blocked by the object and shadows are formed. If a stone is placed in front of water, then the stone blocks the light from the sun and the shadow falls on the water.

Hope this helps.
