We all have witnessed one of the epic film Mr. India , starred evergreen Anil Kapoor and gorgeous Sridevi .
Recently, Ali Abbas Zafar had excitedly announced Mr. India’s trilogy on social media and it sparked a new controversy.
He wrote, “Excited to partner with @ZeeStudios_ for an epic trilogy #MrIndia! It is a huge responsibility to carry forward an iconic character loved by everyone. Currently, working on the script, no actor has been locked till now. Once we lock the first draft of the script, casting begins“
Let’s see his tweet :
To this, Shekhar Kapoor, the original director of Mr. India replied quickly and said that the movie can’t be made without permission from the original creators of the film.
“No one has even asked me or mentioned to me about this film called Mr. India 2. I can only guess that they using the title to get a big weekend. For they cannot use the characters/story without permission from the original creators of the film,” Shekhar Kapoor tweeted.
Have a look at his tweet:
Daughter of Anil Kapoor , Sonam Kapoor also got disappointed with the issue of the post and and she took it to her twitter account and posted : “A lot of people have been asking me about the Mr. India remake. Honestly, my father didn’t even know the film was being remade, we found about it through social media when Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted. It’s quite disrespectful and underhanded if it is true since no one bothered to consult my father or Shekhar uncle, two people who played a major role in making the film what it was and is. It’s sad because the film was made heart and hard work and is very sentimental to my father, beyond commerce and announcements, it’s a part of his legacy. I should hope that respect for someone’s work and contribution is still as important to us as a big weekend at the box-office.”

It would be interesting to know that how does Zafar now will explain the things to Shekhar kapoor about the uninformed and unasked thing he just declared in a post .
