The makers Mr India have confirmed that there will be no sequel to the 1987 hit starring Anil Kapoor and Sridevi now that Sridevi is no more. She died in Dubai in February 2018. Actor Anil Kapoor said that it would be meaningless to make a film with a replacement, which would put a big question mark on the actor’s legacy.
According to a report in The India Wire, Director Shekhar Kapur, who directed the film back in 1987, also backed up the confirmation made by Boney and Anil. “The question doesn’t even arise,” he said.
“Mr India had always been the project of the main trio – Amrish Puri, Sridevi and Anil Kapoor; and any sequel created with a new cast replacing two of the main trio will not have the same magic as the original film,” a source close to the film unit said.
