Sonam Kapoor, the daughter of Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, is very angry to know that director Ali Abbas Zafar has announced that he will be working on a remake of the 1987 hit movie Mr. India which costarred her dad, Anil Kapoor, and Sridevi, the mother of Janhvi Kapoor.
To help you recollect, Ali Abbas has directed movies like Sulta and Tiger Zinda Hai.
Sonam wrote, “A lot of people have been asking me about the MR. India remake. Honestly, my father didn’t even know the film was being remade, we found out about it through social media when @aliabbaszafar tweeted.”
She continued the post with, “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. It’s sad because that was a film made with heart and hard work and is very sentimental to my father, beyond commerce and announcements, it’s a part of his legacy. I should hope that respect for someone’s work and contribution is still as important to us as a big weekend at the box office.”
What do you think about this? Did Sonam do the right thing of pulling Ali Abbas for not even taking permission from the original makers and actors? Express your view below.
