When Boney Kapoor saw Sridevi in the film ‘Sixteen Sawan’, his heart fell on the beauty of the actress. Boney was making the film ‘Mr India’ with his younger brother Anil Kapoor and wanted to cast Sridevi in this film. At that time, Sridevi did not give sentiments to Boney Kapoor. The interesting disclosure of ‘Mr India’ film casting was made by Boney himself in an interview given to the media.
Sridevi’s mother demanded a hefty fee
Boney Kapoor always wanted to cast Sridevi in ’Mr India’, there was no way to reach him. Boney brainwashed and met Sridevi’s mother and offered a film for Sridevi. Sridevi’s mother had asked Boney for a fee of Rs 10 lakh for the film. At that time 10 lakh was a big amount. Boney not only agreed to the fee, but went two steps ahead and agreed to pay up to 11 lakhs.
