Anil Kapoor shares a good relationship with his elder brother Boney Kapoor now. But the two once had a major showdown on the sets of cult film Mr. India because of Sridevi.

Anil Kapoor and Boney Kapoor are brothers who have always stood by each other through thick and thin. They share a good rapport and are almost inseparable. However, there was once a time when the two brothers did not see eye to eye, and it has to do with late veteran actress Sridevi. Yes, you read that right!

So, what had happened? What led Anil Kapoor and Boney Kapoor to fight with each other? Let us tell you everything in detail. The said fight took place on the sets of their cult film Mr. India (1987) wherein Anil Kapoor played the lead role opposite Sridevi.

Before Sridevi came onboard to play the female lead in Mr. India, her alleged relationship with actor Mithun Chakraborty had hit rock bottom and was on the verge of breaking-up. Boney Kapoor was gearing up to roll his sci-fi movie at that time and was keen to rope in Sridevi as the leading lady.

When the producer approached the actress, she turned down the offer. Later on, she demanded an enormous amount ₹10 lakh as her remuneration to come onboard. Kapoor offered her ₹11 lakh instead and signed the actress for the film.

Apart from playing the male lead in Mr. India, Anil Kapoor had also invested heavily in the production of the film. So, when he came to know that his elder brother had cast Sridevi by paying her more than what she had demanded, he got really upset.

After some time, Sridevi faced a financial crunch which made it impossible to bear expenses for her mother’s treatment. It is said that Boney Kapoor came to her rescue and took the responsibility of her treatment on her shoulder.

This did not go down well with Anil Kapoor and the two brothers had a major showdown on the sets of Mr. India. The actor later walked out of the set and did not return till director Shekhar Kapoor intervened.
