While 2017 seems to be the year of sequels some films have released and several others are lined up -there is one sequel that has been waiting for its turn for over decades. Yes, we are talking about one of Hindi cinema's most iconic movies, Mr India (1987), directed by Shekhar Kapur. Be it Anil Kapoor's impressive invisible act, Sridevi sizzling to Kate Nahi Kat Te number or Mogambo's (Amrish Puri) menacing moves - the film has not faded from public memory in all these years.

A few weeks ago, while talking to us about the film completing 30 years, producer Boney Kapoor had said, “People thought I was crazy to make a film like Mr India.“ He added, “Would I like to make Mr India 2? Yes, I would love to. I am itching to make a few more films like that.“

And now Sridevi, who is keenly awaiting her next release, Mom, confirms this. During a chat with BT, when we asked her about Mr India 2 and the possibility of Anil Kapoor and her coming together for it, the actress said, “It is too early to talk about it, but Mr India 2 is definitely on, because wherever we go, we are always asked about it, and it's very rare to see such eagerness for a sequel. Mr India 2 will happen... I want Boneyji to make it. And I think he will do it. The story isn't finalised yet, so it hasn't reached a stage where we can say anything more about it.“

Well, what do we say...audience khush hua!
