Kapoor family has always executed togetherness and love for each other. Be it a happy occasion or a crucial time, the clan has always been there for each other like rock and especially the Kapoor brothers, Boney Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor got each other back always!
But, it seems the bond between Anil and Boney has been affected a bit due to their professional issues!
As reported earlier, soon after filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar announced Mr India Trilogy, media has been flooded with stories about people opposing it and the Kapoors being agitated for not being informed ahead of announcement.
When Sonam Kapoor Ahuja got to know about Ali's announcement, she gave him her piece of mind and posted her statement on her social media account. Talking about how she and her father came to know about it only after Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted about it, Sonam Kapoor wrote in her long post:

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 what it is. It's sad because that was a film made with heart and hard work and is very sentimental to my father, beyond commerce and announcements, it's a part of his legacy.- Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
Shekhar Kapur who is the director of original Mr. India plans on taking a legal action against the makers of the prospective trilogy and he too share his thoughts Twitter.
In his post he wrote: "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."
He also added that many top notch lawyers from around the world, who have seen the film and are a fan have come forward to help, fight it out in the court of law.

Now, a source close to the Kapoors has revealed to Deccan Chronicle that Anil Kapoor, who was the star in the film along with Sridevi, is strictly against the idea but on the other hand, Boney is in complete favor. Boney, who was the producer of the film, apparently gave the go ahead for the trilogy and this didn't go down well with his brother Anil.
Technically, Boney is in the right. He's the producer of Mr India. He doesn't need to consult anyone before giving his approval. Boney shares a close working relationship with the Zee network. So he allowed them to go ahead (with the new Mr India). But Anil, on hearing of the project, was aghast. And he's right in being upset, too. He is not only the leading man of Mr India but also the producer's brother...- A Source told Deccan Chronicle
