Javed Akhtar Gives A New Angle To The Ongoing ‘Mr. India’ Debate On Twitter

Mr. India is one of the most popular Hindi movies of all time. It is regarded as one of the best-made movies of ever and the magic that Anil Kapoor and Late Sridevi created on the screen is still remembered by the lovers of Hindi movies as one of the best performances of all time.

Recently, Mr. India has been in news all over again after the announcement that the film will be remade in the form of a trilogy, to be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. This news hasn’t got down too well with the original makers of the team.

“The director of Mr. India Mr. Shekhar Kapur said that nobody contacted him before making such a big announcement. He took to Twitter and wrote:

The argument on a remake of #MrIndia is not that no one took permission from me or even bothered to tell me.

The question is. If you are remaking a feature film, based on a director’s very successful work, does the Director have no creative rights over what he/she created?”

Sonam Kapoor also took to Twitter and said that his father’s legacy has been insulted.

“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 about ut through social media when Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted. 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 the film was made 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.” Sonam Kapoor tweeted. 

Recently, Javed Akhtar also joined controversy and claimed that he gave it all to Shekhar Kapoor.

Shekhar saheb the story, the situations, the scenes, the characters, the dialogue, the lyrics, and even the title none of these were yours. I gave it all to you. Yes, you execute it very well but how can your claim on the film be more than mine. It wasn’t your idea. It wasn’t your dream, Javed Akhtar tweeted.
