Shekhar Kapur isn’t willing to hang up his boots after merely making evident his displeasure over being kept in the dark about the remake of Mr. India. After Sonam Kapoor criticised the move, Kapur, who helmed the iconic film, suggested he may take legal action against the makers of Ali Abbas Zafar’s directorial venture. When director Kunal Kohli suggested Kapur explore a legal route, he responded: “Yes. It’s time to test this legally. Let’s do it.” Sonam Kapoor also tweeted a few days ago how her father and the original Mr. India, Anil Kapoor, had no idea this reboot was in the works. Zafar hasn’t commented on it till now.
Take a look at Kohli and Kapur’s tweets right here:
@Javedakhtarjadu won a hard fought battle for the rights of lyricists & writers. Its time we did the same?
