“Sridevi Never Wanted A Mr India Sequel”

Sridevi- The Queen of Hearts

Sridevi Never Wanted A Mr India Sequel and it is true.

It is  surprising  that producer Boney Kapoor has  agreed to be  a silent accomplice in Zee Network and Ali Abbas Zafar’s  plans to make Shekhar Kapoor’s 1987  iconic  film Mr India into a franchise. I remember speaking to  the late(and  much missed) Sridevi about it. And she was  vehemently  opposed  to the  idea of  any kind of extended  life for  Mr India.

The  incandescent diva had said to me, “Mr India? I don’t think that can be remade  or  turned  into a  sequel. Such a  film just happens. When we were working on it,we never  thought it would turn out to be such an influential  film. Even today people  remember the film, Mogambo and  my character  of the talkative journalist. Everything just came  together in Mr India. Such a happy situation is  impossible to repeat.”

And  now we  have Boney Kapoor apparently  giving his blessings to Zee Network and Ali Abbas Zafar.

According to a well-informed source, Boney was approached  by Zee Network. He agreed to let them take  the franchise  forward.

This, when she was opposed to  the  idea of  taking Mr India forward.
