Bollywood film Mogul, which is a biopic on late music baron Gulshan Kumar, has been one of the most-talked-about projects in recent years. The biopic was officially announced in 2017. Akshay Kumar was set to topline the high-profile project.
However, the superstar bowed out of the film months before it was set to begin production. After Kumar exited the movie, Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan was rumoured to be coming onboard not only as the co-producer of the film but also to play the lead role in it.
Later, the Dangal (2016) actor also walked out of the project after its director Subhash Kapoor was dragged into the MeToo movement. Since Subhash Kapoor has been cleared of any sexual misconduct, Khan is rumoured to be returning to the project.
T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar confirmed the news to an Indian daily but refused to say whether Khan would also star in the film as well as produce it.
“I can’t say anything about it right now. Now, I am very comfortable about it because I know the film is happening and with the best person who looks (laughs) like my father. There is no ambiguity in that. So, I am very happy about that,” said Bhushan Kumar.
