Producer Boney Kapoor is planning a sequel to the 1987 science fiction superhero film Mr India, which starred Anil Kapoor, Sri Devi and Amrish Puri, which was written by Salim-Javed and directed by Shekhar Kapur.
The script of the sequal Mr India 2 is ready and will go on floors sometime in the middle of next year. Sri Devi will make a comeback of sorts with this film. Anil Kapoor will be part of it, but the lead actors will be different. The director for the film is yet to be finalised.
But the casting coup is that Salman Khan will play the role of villain Mogambo which was so famously played by the late Amrish Puri in Mr India.
Shekhar Kapur, Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar are said to have been consulted for fine-tuning the script of Mr India 2.
