Reports suggesting a sequel to the 1987’s Anil Kapoor starrer Mr. India were dismissed by Shekhar Kapur. When asked if Anil Kapoor and he are collaborating on a sequel to Mr. India, the director responded, “False alarm!”
A source close to Boney and Anil Kapoor says, “There will never be another Mr. India. Sridevi is gone and it is impossible to imagine Mr. India without Sridevi. Even if Anil Kapoor was agreeable, Boney Kapoor, who was the producer of Mr. India, would never dream of doing a sequel without his late wife.”
But sources in the industry speculate that the director is in talks with Anil Kapoor and may collaborate for a web series.
As for the participation of Shekhar Kapur in the Mr. India sequel, here’s what Shekhar lastly had to say on the topic: “I don’t know what is happening with that project or what Boney Kapoor’s plans are. I was never going to direct the sequel. Now with Sridevi no more, the question doesn’t arise.”
