Shekhar Kapur pushes Mr India shoot to work with Hrithik Roshan

By Hindustan Times

Talks about a sequel to director Shekhar Kapur’s Mr India (1987) have been doing the rounds for a while now. One of India’s first sci-fi-superhero films, it stars Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in the lead roles and features Amrish Puri as the arch-enemy Mogambo. The shoot for the sequel, which
will be produced by Boney Kapoor, was to commence around March next year. Sridevi was even reported as saying, “Mr India’s sequel will go on the floors after No Entry Mein Entry, probably by next year.” But now, it seems the superhero must wait a while. Kapur’s dream project, Paani, suddenly seems to have taken priority in the director’s calendar, thanks to the busy schedule of the film’s lead actor, Hrithik Roshan.
