Sonam Kapoor is unhappy that Ali Abbas Zafar did not talk to his father Anil Kapoor before making the film Mr. India. Sonam tweeted and said, ‘Many people are asking me about the remake of Mr. India. My father was not even aware of any such remake, we came to know this on social media when Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted about the film. It is a matter of great misfortune that no one talked to my father or Shekhar uncle about this film. Both of them had a big contribution in making this film. This is very sad because Mr. India is very close to my father’s heart and he worked hard for this film.
No one has even asked me or mentioned to me about this film called Mr India 2. I can only guess that they using the title to get a big weekend. For they cannot use the characters/story without permission from the original creators of the film. https://t.co/Set5eDH63j

But these people cannot use the character or story of the film without the permission of the real producers.
