Sonam Kapoor upset with ‘Mr India 2’ announcement, calls it disrespectful to not Discuss with anil kapoor

-

Sonam Kapoor-Ahuja, on Saturday, took to social media to respond to the announcement of Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Mr. India’s trilogy.

The ’34-year-old star said it was disrespectful that the original creators of the cult classic weren’t involved and consulted for the remake of the film.

Earlier this week, the director had in a tweet shared that he was partnering with Zee Studios for the trilogy based on the 1987 Shekhar Kapur-directed movie, which featured Anil Kapoor as Mr. India.

“A lot of people have been asking me about ‘Mr. India’s remake. Honestly, my father didn’t even know the film was being remade, we found out about it through social media when @aliabbaszafar 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,”

Sonam wrote on social media.

The actor added that the original creators should be respected

Earlier, Kapur had also responded to the news of the trilogy, saying, “No one has even asked 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.”
