New Delhi, Nov 17: The man who directed India's first science-fiction film Mr.India, has been roped in to direct its sequel Mr.India 2.
Producer Boney Kapoor, who has been planning this sequel for a long time, has reportedly convinced Shekhar Kapur to rework his magic with the sequel. This movie will bring back the original movie's lead pair-Anil Kapoor and Sridevi, with Salman Khan as the new inclusion who will be playing an important role in this project. Only this time, Anil and Sridevi will not be the lead pair while Salman will essay a negative character on screen for the first time. Mogambo, Amrish Puri, will surely be missed in this sequel.
Initially, when Shekhar Kapoor was approached, he expressed his inability to work as a director due to prior commitments but agreed to contribute as a creative assistant. Later, Boney Kapoor also approached Anurag Basu with the proposal to direct the sequel to the 1987 super hit movie.
Finally, it is Shekhar Kapoor, who will be donning the director's hat . However, he said that it is too early to say anything about the project at this stage.
A 3D version of the original is already being done by Boney Kapoor, which is to be released soon.
