Shekhar Kapur to take legal action against makers of the Mr. India remake

Shekhar Kapur to take legal action against makers of the Mr. India remake

Ali Abbas Zaffar’s recent announcement of rebooting the Mr.India series has been surrounded by a lot of controversy. First, it was actress Sonam Kapoor who claimed that the makers didn’t even bother to ask her father Anil Kapoor and Shekhar Kapur, two men who played an integral part in the project, before the announcement. However, Sonam later admitted that Boney Kapoor did have a word with Anil for the same but they were left confused with the sudden announcement.



Now it looks like Mr. India’s director Shekhar Kapur too has been taken aback by the announcement. In a series of tweets, Shekar Kapur expressed his disappointment over the developments of the project. He responded to Kunal Kohli's tweet and hinted that he would take a legal action against the makers. Kunal Kohli wrote, "Javed Akhtar won a hard-fought battle for the rights of lyricists and writers. It’s time we did the same?"
Shekhar Kapur then replied to his tweet and wrote, "Yes. It's time to test this legally... Let's do it."

Shekhar Kapur had also posted a picture of Amrish Puri as Mogambo and had revealed how Mogambo would have reacted after hearing about Mr. India 2. He wrote, "Kya Kaha? Mr India 2 ? Is duniya mein koi aur Mogambo bhi hai?"

Well, it’ll be interesting to see how this one plays out…
