After Sridevi’s sudden demise in February, it seems filmmakers are now re-working on their strategies, one of them being the ‘Mr India’ (1987) sequel.
Deccan Chronicle reports that Boney Kapoor and Anil Kapoor have taken the decision to scrap the project.
A source told the publication, “It makes no sense to have a sequel without Sridevi. It’s like Mother India without Nargis, or Agra without the Taj Mahal. Mr India is so closely associated with three main actors Anil Kapoor, Amrish Puri and Sridevi. And with two of them gone it would be impossible to recreate the magic of the original. Boney and Anil have decided to call off the sequel plans.”
Director Shekhar Kapur confirmed the news to the publication, “I don’t know what is happening with that project or what Boney’s plans are. I was never going to direct the sequel. Now with Sridevi no more, the question doesn’t arise.” It looks like many dreams died along with Sridevi. Mr India being one of them.
