Filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar has confirmed that his project ‘Mr India’ is neither a sequel or a remake of the original 1987 film.
Since the project was announced, there was much criticism from the makers of the original. Now opening up about the film, Zafar revealed that it was not connected to the original. He further stated that a superhero film starring Katrina Kaif he is working on, will “carry bits forward” in ‘Mr India’.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Zafar said, “It’s a completely new film, we are just calling it Mr India. My film is essentially about the common man fighting a mighty villain, but done in a cool, hip way, using science and technology and being relevant to today’s social scenario.”
He further added, “I am creating a superhero universe, beginning with Katrina’s film. We then move to Mr India, which will carry forward bits from Katrina’s film, and we are developing two more characters. My third superhero is rooted in Indian mythology and the fourth comes from the Indian army.”
