Oscar-nominated filmmaker Shekhar Kapur and veteran Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor have shared that they are coming together back again on something super exciting, 31 years after the release of cult classic Mr. India to repeat history, and that could be ‘Mr. India 2’. The filmmaker shared the news with the public on his twitter handle.
He captioned his tweet with these words, “Discussing the look for the next Mr India 2, or another movie together? You tell them @AnilKapoor” and also posted a picture alongside in which he can be seen adjusting the Anil’s cap. Here’s the pic, have a look:
On-screen Mr. India and off-screen Anil Kapoor retweeted the same pic and also mentioned his excitement about working with Shekhar again. His exact words in the tweet were,
“Feels like deja vu. @shekharkapur and I are deep in discussion about something new and super exciting. We’re hoping to create the same magic we did before with Mr. India…The cap adjustment was lucky then, and it might do the trick this time as well,”
Mr. India is a 1987 Bollywood release which featured actors like Amrish Puri, Sridevi, and Satish Kaushik. Unfortunately, the earlier two mentioned names Amrish Puri and Sridevi have departed for the heaven and it remains to be seen that who fills their vacancy and will they be able to do justice to the roles these two played in the original version.
When it comes to Anil Kapoor, he still hasn’t lost his youthful spirit when it comes to roles he gets in today’s Bollywood movies, even after his children Sonam and Harshvardhan entered the film industry only a while ago.
