Speculations have been rife lately that cult classic Mr India (1987), which had Anil Kapoor and Sridevi fronting the cast, is set to have a sequel. However, when director Shekhar Kapur was asked about the same, he denied any such development. The famed director simply said, “False alarm!”

The filmmaker went on to add that he has no idea what is happening with the project. “I don’t know what is happening with that project or what Boney Kapoor (producer) is planning. I was never going to direct the sequel and now with Sridevi gone, the question doesn’t arise.”

A source close to Boney Kapoor also revealed that with Sridevi no more, there is no possibility of Mr India 2. “There will never be another Mr India. Sridevi is gone and it is impossible to imagine Mr India without Sridevi. Even if Anil Kapoor was agreeable, Boney Kapoor, who was the producer of Mr India, would never dream of doing a sequel without his late wife.”

Meanwhile, news also has it that Shekhar Kapur is planning to direct a web-series and he may team up with Anil Kapoor for the same.
