Tiger Zinda Hai director Ali Abbas Zafar has been roped in to write and helm Mr India trilogy being produced by Zee Studios. The film is said to be a spin-off of the 1987 blockbuster of the same name which starred Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in the lead roles.

The project is currently in the scripting stage and casting will begin once the makers lock its first draft.

It is a huge responsibility to carry forward an iconic character loved by everyone. Currently, working on the script, no actor has been locked till now.
