"I'm so happy and proud that people remember 'Mr India' fondly even today. With 'Mr India', we were never dependent on the stardom of the actors, just on the magic of the film," Boney said in a statement issued here.

"All our fight sequences, stunts and the destruction, it was real-time direction and special effects; it was not done during post-production," he says.

"I remember being one of the youngest members behind the camera and today with my upcoming film 'Mom', I am the eldest member," he says.

Directed by ace filmmaker Shekhar Kapur film had several memorable moments and characters like the idea of invisible man (played by Anil as Arun) struck the chord with the audience.
