No Sridevi, no Mr India sequel, says Shekhar Kapur

No Sridevi, no Mr India sequel, says Shekhar Kapur
Not again! Rumours and gossip about a sequel to the 1987 landmark motion picture Mr India which brought to viewers the concept of the invisible hero are nothing but unrealistic conjecture. When I got in touch with Shekhar Kapur asking if Anil Kapoor and he are collaborating on a sequel to Mr India , Shekhar responded, False alarm! A source close to Boney and Anil Kapoor says, There will never be another Mr India. Sridevi is gone. It is impossible to imagine Mr India without Sridevi. Even if Anil Kapoor was agreeable, Boney Kapoor who is the producer of Mr India would never dream of doing a sequel without his late wife. Sources say there is indeed a project brewing between Anil and Shekhar Kapur. But it is not Mr India 2.Anil and Shekhar have been planning a film together for the longest time. They are now looking at doing a web series together. As for Shekhar Kapurs involvement with the Mr India sequel here is Shekhars last word on the topic: I dont know what is happening with that project or what Boney Kapoors plans are. I was never going to direct the sequel. Now with Sridevi no more, the question doesnt arise.
