Mr India, which was released in 1987, went on to become one of the most career-defining films for Sridevi. The film starred Anil Kapoor in the lead role, with Sridevi playing his romantic interest. Late actor Amrish Puri had played the iconic role of Mogambo. Boney Kapoor, the actress’ husband, had produced the film and it went on to become one of the biggest hits of the time.
Having later taken a break from Bollywood, the actress made a comeback with English Vinglish in 2012 and now, latest reports claim that she is all set to start work on a Mr India sequel, early next year. A close source reveals, “Sridevi will be a part of Mr India’s sequel. The actress is figuring out the styling and costumes for the film as of now.”
Although Sridevi was heard saying at several events that she wants to be a part of Mr India 2, the actress is yet to confirm the report. During an event last year, Boney had said, “I am keen on making a sequel of Mr India but Shekhar Kapur will not direct it. We need an exciting story. The day we get the idea we will jump at it.” The actress is currently busy shooting for Mom, with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, which is also being produced by Boney.
