Much has been written and said about the forthcoming sequel to Anil Kapoor and Sridevi starrer ‘Mr India’ (1987). However, filmmaker Boney Kapoor who is making the sequel has confirmed that the popular villain from the first instalment, Mogambo, will not be a part of it.

Mogambo was played by Amrish Puri and was a role which he was recognised for in the years following. As reported by Times of India, Kapoor spoke at a recent event and confirmed the development, “Obviously, there won’t bea Mogambounless 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”.

It will be interesting to say the least as to who will land the role of antagonist in the sequel. Wait and watch and keep tuned to BizAsia for the latest, as always.
