Ranveer Singh is currently in the best phase of his life career-wise. After winning everyone’s heart as Muraad in 2019 blockbuster film Gully Boy, Ranveer has two special films in his kitty for 2020- 83’ and Jayeshbhai Jordaar. His fans stay eager to witness their favorite in his new avatars but it seems like they might get an amazing surprise.
Director Ali Abbas Zafar is planning for the sequel or spin-off of Mr. India and has versatile actor Ranveer Singh on his cards. The 1987 Shekhar Kapur directed Mr. India featuring Anil Kapoor, Sri Devi, and Amrish Puri was a huge success at the Box Office. The film redefined the science fiction genre in Bollywood and even after 33-years of its release the film is still remembered by everyone.
The news of Mr. India’s remake has been taking rounds of the B-Town since a very long time but now it seems like the rumors may turn out to be true. In a recent interview, Ali Abbas Zafar the director of Salman and Katrina starrer Bharat is all geared up to make a sequel of the 80s super hit film which will be based on the original story, and will be titled Mr. India 2.
Ali Abbas Zafar has reached out to Ranveer Singh to play the lead role in the film and the sources have revealed that the Simmba actor is too excited to be a part of the film. The actor is ready to step into Anil Kapoor’s shoes and entertain the audience as much as he did in the original film.
The reports say that Mr. India is Ali Abbas Zafar’s dream project and he has been silently working on it for a while now. The sequel of Mr. India will not be a sequel or a remake of the film as such; the director is going to give it a spin-off according to today’s day and age. The first draft of the script has been locked already and the director will take each step after it very cautiously as Mr. India is a big deal.
The hunt for the character of Mogambo is still on and even the female lead is yet to be picked. But the makers are keen to rope in Shah Rukh Khan for the same.
The film will mark Ranveer Singh’s second collaborative effort with Ali Abbas Zafar after the 2014 period-drama Gunday.
Apart from Mr. India 2, Ali Abbas Zafar is also working on a female based superhero film with Katrine Kaif.
Mr. India 2 will be ready to be released by 2022.
