Being one of Bollywood’s most iconic films, it comes to no surprise that rumours of a sequel to the hit film ‘Mr India’ (1987) are doing the rounds. However original director Shekhar Kapur feels that if a sequel is to be made, he should not be the one to do it.
“I think somebody will make it… Boney Kapoor and Anil Kapoor have been talking about it, and I think there should be a new director who takes a new perspective,” Indian Express reports the film makers stating.
He went on to explain, “You can’t copy a film, and I have also moved on in life. Though I would love to see one (a sequel of the film).”
Kapur also spoke about people approaching him with the idea just to make big money in no time at all. However Kapur himself feels very different about film making and especially with a film like this. “I still don’t understand what they’re talking about. I think that the whole nature (of the filmmaking business here) has changed. We made a film to last as long as it could. I don’t know how to make a film that lasts three weeks or four weeks. So, I really think somebody else should make it.”
The talks of a sequel have been doing the rounds for a while now, however nothing has been confirmed. So it seems like audiences will have to wait a little longer until anything else is said and done.
