Jhanvi Kapoor Is All Set To Star In Mr. India 2
The original starred Anil Kapoor as Mr. India and late Bollywood star Sridevi in the lead roles.
Filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar has opened up about his upcoming trilogy of Mr. India with The Times of India. He has claimed it has no connection with the 1987 classic by Shekhar Kapur.
The original starred Anil Kapoor as Mr. India and late Bollywood star Sridevi in the lead roles. Zafar says that his film is entirely new, with a new script of international standards.
Asked about the late Sridevi’s replacement, and if Jahnvi Kapoor would be willing to step into her mother’s shoes for the new Mr. India, Zafar said that producer and Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor “would be happy if this could happen.”
Excited to partner with @ZeeStudios_ for an epic trilogy #MrIndia! It is a huge responsibility to carry forward an iconic character loved by everyone. Currently, working on the script, no actor has been locked till now. Once we lock the first draft of the script, casting begins!— ali abbas zafar (@aliabbaszafar) February 17, 2020
Zafar went on, “It will be a collaboration between Boney Kapoor and Zee. We shall be shooting in India and abroad as well. A large part of it will be on the sets as it will be very heavy on special effects. But, it has got nothing to do with Anil Kapoor’s Mr. India; it’s a new sci-fi film, with a big budget and high production values. We want to create characters like the Avengers. Mr. India will be of international standards.”
Last year, Ali said in a statement while announcing the Mr. India trilogy, “It is a huge responsibility to carry forward an iconic character that has been loved by Indians for so many years.”
In the original script, Sridevi played the role of a journalist.
Let’s see what this new venture has in store for the fans. If the movie manages to satisfy the fans of Mr. India, then this movie will certainly be a huge hit.
