Anil Kapoor, Sridevi can star in ‘Mr India’ sequel: Javed Akhtar


Renowned Bollywood writer Javed Akhtar says actors Anil Kapoor and Sridevi can star in the sequel to their iconic film ‘Mr India’ because they still look their parts and haven’t aged.

“The film may have aged but not the lead actors. Boney (Kapoor) has been thinking of making a sequel and it shouldn’t be a problem to cast Anil and Sridevi because they can still get by playing their parts,” Akhtar said in Mumbai on the sidelines of the 17th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.
