We had reported earlier that a sequel to ‘Mr. India’, titled ‘Mr. India 2’ is being planned. Now, filmmaker Boney Kapoor has confirmed the news, clarifying that the film will be a sequel and not a remake of the 1987 hit Mr. India. He also confirms that Anil Kapoor and Sridevi will be a part of the film. However, there will be no ‘Mogambo’, but a new villain in the film.
“Obviously, there won’t be a Mogambo unless we are remaking the same film. As of now, we don’t have plans of remaking the same film. We are working on a sequel. If there is a sequel, Mogambo won’t be there, there would be a new villain,” Kapoor said.
Buzz had it that Salman Khan was being considered for the villain’s role. However, Boney Kapoor brushes off the rumors.
Kapoor said: “If I had my way, I would plan every film with Salman Khan. But this is not in my hands, it will be according to the script.”
Sridevi and Anil Kapoor were the lead stars in the original flick too.
“Well, of course she (Sridevi) will be a part of ‘Mr. India 2’ for sure. We are yet to finalise a script. Along with Anil, she will be part of it,” Boney Kapoor said.
“My journey with her began with ‘Mr. India’, so obviously the journey has to continue and how can it continue without her, especially when it’s ‘Mr. India’?” he added.
Presently Kapoor is focusing on No Entry Mein Entry.
“But before I get down to ‘Mr. India’, we have just finished the script for ‘No Entry Mein Entry’.”
