As per latest media reports, Ali Abbas Zafar will be writing and directing the Mr India trilogy, which is said to be the beginning of a superhero universe. The epic trilogy on Mr. India will be based on the iconic characters of the original film, which was then abutted by Anil Kapoor, Sridevi and Amrish Puri.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the news on Twitter. He wrote, “BIGGG NEWS… Zee Studios confirms a trilogy: #MrIndia with Ali Abbas Zafar… He will write and direct the film… Ali is currently working on the script and building the superhero universe… Once the script is locked, makers will sign actors/technicians.”
Ali also took to Twitter to say that he is yet to confirm the cast. He wrote, “Excited to partner with @ZeeStudios_ for an epic trilogy #MrIndia! It is a huge responsibility to carry forward an iconic character loved by everyone. Currently, working on the script, no actor has been locked till now. Once we lock the first draft of the script, casting begins!”
Mr India Trilogy is not a ‘part 2’ or a remake of the older film as lately reported in some sections of the media, but a re-imagining of the iconic classic. We are looking forward for the movie to hit the floors.
