Sridevi is a diva, and she has rightfully earned that crown. Millions of fans have watched her scale the peaks of stardom with sheer hard work and dedication, one film at a time.

Last seen in English Vinglish, she proved why she is the undisputed Bollywood Empress. The pre-release reviews of Mom are so encouraging that hubby, producer Boney Kapoor is already planning his next movie.

Yes, the long-awaited Mr India 2 is back on track — finally. Sridevi and her co-star Anil Kapoor return to play their original roles while another young pair will feature in pivotal parts. A source close to the development, says, “The idea is to take the story forward, but not just for the heck of it. We wanted a solid plot, and we have got it.” Sridevi and Anil are now all set to recreate the Mr. India magic under a new director.

Unfortunately, Shekhar Kapur, the director of the original, has declined to direct the sequel. In the search for fresh blood, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Mom’s director Ravi Udyawar seem to be strong contenders.
