Who would have thought there could be another Mr. India? Even as Mogambo and Miss Hawa Hawaii still remain fresh in our minds, there are plans for making a sequel to the 1987 hit, Mr. India. In the original movie, Anil Kapoor and Sridevi had enchanted audiences with their roles and so popular was Amrish Puri’s portrayal of Mogambo that, it made a bald-head synonymous with it!
Apparently, Boney Kapoor is planning a sequel of Mr. India with his son Arjun Kapoor in the lead. The film’s original cast, Anil Kapoor and Sridevi, have reportedly confirmed their presence in the sequel already! It is being speculated that work on the film will only start when the father-son duo wrap up with their professional commitments. A source says, “There’s no question of Arjun not being part of the sequel. His father is producing it and Arjun is a star — it won’t make sense to not have him on board. But they aren’t discussing the project right now, as they are still working on the script’s final draft. Also, both of them are busy with their respective movies”.
Currently, Arjun Kapoor is working on romantic-comedy Gunday, which is slated for release on 14th February and Boney Kapoor is busy producing No Entry Mein Entry. Boney Kapoor is also producing a remake of the Telugu film Okkadu, which stars Arjun. It is believed that Boney Kapoor plans to make Mr. India 2 on a big scale. Most probably, the father-son duo will start working on the film by the end of this year when they would have fulfilled their prior commitments.
Will we see Arjun Kapoor in Mr. India’s shoes? We definitely need a superhero though!
