When Ali Abbas Zafar announced his project Mr India, neither the fans nor the director of the original film Shekhar Kapur was happy. Kapur slammed the Tiger Zinda Hai director for not informing him about the reboot of his much-loved film. The original film of 1987 stars Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in the lead roles.
From the day Ali Abbas Zafar had announced his Mr India, the internet has slammed him a lot. People have their childhood attached to the film and they don’t want a reboot of the already well-made film. Now, Ali has opened up about his idea of the film. He told Mumbai Mirror that it’s neither a remake nor a reboot of the original film.
The Sultan director shared, “It’s a completely new film, we are just calling it Mr India. My film is essentially about the common man fighting a mighty villain, but done in a cool, hip way, using science and technology and being relevant to today’s social scenario.”
Ali Abbas Zafar is yet to announce the star cast of Mr India. He will now remain focused on a superhero film starring Katrina Kaif. About the same, he said, “Yes, I am creating a superhero universe, beginning with Katrina’s film. We then move to Mr India, which will carry forward bits from Katrina’s film, and we are developing two more characters. My third superhero is rooted in Indian mythology and the fourth comes from the Indian army.”
The filmmaker was asked who will star as a male lead opposite Kat in the film. But he didn’t reveal any name. When asked when he would collaborate with Salman Khan again, he said he would love to work with the actor very soon.
