For the longest time, there have been reports suggesting Ali Abbas Zafar to cast Shah Rukh Khan for his next directorial venture. However, the reports are still termed as rumours instead of confirmation but now we hear that the film might be happening for real and it is said to be a remake of Mr India. Interestingly, this time SRK is the one only in this film as we have heard that the film will also have another lead and he is Ranveer Singh. That’s right. If everything falls into the right place, Ranveer and SRK might come together for this remake but as rivals on screen.
According to Times Of India reports, the Bharat director is planning to remake Mr India with SRK and Ranveer and is aiming at giving a fresh spin and a contemporary set up to the existing concept of the film that originally starred Anil Kapoor, Sridevi and Amrish Puri. The reports further stated that Ranveer will be slipping into Anil Kapoor’s shoes while the makers have also approached SRK for the role of an antagonist, Mogambo.
Having said that, we still await an official statement from the makers as well as the actors of the film. Also, it is reported that film will be more of a spin-off than a remake. Since the film is considered to be one of the iconic films, the makers are writing the script keeping the iconic characters in mind. Reportedly, Ranveer has loved the subject and is excited to take on Anil’s role. The makers are keen to have a 2022 festive release for the film.
For now, if the film is in the making, then it would surely be one hell of a movie that we are really looking forward to watching it. Plus, knowing that Ranveer is a die-hard fan of SRK, it would be more than interesting to see them together against each other in the remake.
