Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Pro­ducer Boney Kapoor (left) says he is keen on mak­ing a se­quel to Mr In­dia (1987).

There has been a lot of buzz about Mr In­dia 2 and Boney con­firmed that they are look­ing for an ex­cit­ing script, adding that the cast­ing of the ac­tors will de­pend on the script.

“We are keen to make Mr In­dia 2, but we need an ex­cit­ing story for it. The day we get the idea, we will jump at it. We want to make the se­quel,” he says. Mr In­dia (1987), a sci­ence fic­tion su­per­hero film, di­rected by Shekhar Ka­pur, had ac­tors Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in the lead.

But Boney says that Shekhar would not di­rect the se­quel. “He (Shekhar) is busy with Hol­ly­wood. He is do­ing a lot of stuff in the West. If you want to make a film of this kind, you have to be to­tally pas­sion­ate and in­volved,” he says.

“That time, it was his (Shekhar) only film... ev­ery­body at that time was in­volved with the film. We need a di­rec­tor, who takes this film as a mis­sion... It would be a chal­lenge to make this film,” he adds. Shekhar is presently oc­cu­pied with his film, Paani.

Boney says his chil­dren — ac­tor Ar­jun Kapoor, An­shula, Jhanvi and Khushi have grown up watch­ing the hit film.

Talk­ing about the movie, Sridevi says, “I fol­lowed my di­rec­tor for the scenes and my chore­og­ra­pher for the dance steps.”

In Mr In­dia, Sridevi im­i­tated Char­lie Chap­lin in one of the scenes and her pro­ducer hus­band Boney is all praise for her. “She did the scene con­fi­dently,” Boney says.

In­ter­est­ingly, ac­tor Vidya Balan has ex­pressed her de­sire to play Char­lie Chap­lin in a film, and Sridevi feels Vidya will do a good job at it. “She is an a ex­cel­lent ac­tor and I am sure she will do jus­tice to such a role,” Sridevi adds.

Mean­while, gos­sip mills are abuzz that Sridevi and Boney’s daugh­ter Jhanvi is go­ing to make her de­but in Bol­ly­wood. When asked about it, Sridevi chose to stay mum.
