Boney Kapoor, who once shelved the sequel to 1987 film Mr India after the film’s lead actress Sridevi died in 2018, told that a reboot of the popular film is on the cards.
Mr India recently completed 32 years and speaking about its reboot and a possible franchise, Boney Kapoor told that “The idea is to create a reboot first, and then, make a franchise of it. It needs to be made more contemporary. We have a basic structure in mind. We haven’t decided on a timeline yet but intend to make it soon.”
Sridevi, who was married to Boney Kapoor, died by accidentally drowning in the bathtub of a hotel she was staying in Dubai.
“After Sri, I have even more reason to make the film now… If Shekhar (director Shekhar Kapur) is free, he can direct it. The cast and crew made the film what it was, and if anyone from the original line-up wants to be part of it, they can join us again,” Boney Kapoor added.
Shekhar Kapur tweeted: “What’s with this film!! It’s 32 years old today and refuses to age.”
