Bollywood buzz reveals that filmmaker Boney Kapoor is planning a sequel but not a remake of Mr. India, released in 1987. The filmmaker told media that he would like to introduce a new villain in the film.
In 1987 released film ‘Mr. India’, Amrish Puri played the role of famous villain Mogambo.
Talking to media during the launch of the cover of People magazine featuring his wife and actress Sridevi, Boney Kapoor said, “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.”
Earlier, there were reports that Salman Khan will play the role of Mogambo in the sequel.
The filmmaker 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.”
Once again, actress Sridevi and Anil Kapoor will play the lead roles in the ‘Mr. India’ sequel. Boney Kapoor said, “Well, of course she (Sridevi) will be a part of Mr. India 2 along with Anil for sure. We are yet to finalise a script.”
He added, “My journey with her began with Mr. India, so obviously the journey has to continue.”
He said, “But before I get down to Mr. India, we have just finished the script for No Entry Mein Entry.”
