April 21, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): The sequel of the Hindi movie Mr. India is being made in 3D with special effects. The film will have Anil Kapoor, Sridevi in lead roles with Salman Khan playing the villain. There will also be a young couple in the film, though the cast for that is not fixed yet. The budget of the film is about Rs.100 crore, seeing as the technology that is being used and also because foreign technicians will be doing Salman’s look in the movie. The makers hope Salman’s negative role creates a history of sorts in Bollywood.
Boney Kapoor, who is making the film right now, believes that 3D would be a wonderful experience, given the subject of the movie. He admits that they have been considering the idea for a while now, but things were finalized only a few days ago.
Anil and Sridevi last appeared together in the 1997 movie, Judaai.
Boney thinks it will be a challenge for the team, as Salman has never done a negative role before.
There will also be a young couple in the film. Though Boney hasn’t decided on who will play the couple, he states that there is a possibility of them being known faces. Two writers are working on two different scripts for the film. Boney will be choosing one of them.
SFX was far from developed back when Mr. India was made. Despite the lack of special effects, the film was a visual delight, thanks to some brilliant camera tricks.
