According to reports, superstar Aamir Khan, who had recently walked out of Bhushan Kumar’s ambitious project Mogul after its director Subhash Kapoor was accused of sexual harassment by a woman, has now decided to return to co-produce it.
Mogul is a biopic based on the life of T-Series founder and music baron Gulshan Kumar and hence, the project is very close to his son Bhushan Kumar’s heart. Kumar, who now heads T-Series, has been trying his best to put this project together for more than a year now.
Though the makers are yet to comment on the new development, sources close to the project reveal that Khan thought of returning when Bhushan Kumar sacked Subhash Kapoor from the position of the director of the film.
“The script is close to Aamir and he wants to make the film. Bhushan and he have had a number of meetings since and decided to collaborate on Mogul again. The hunt is on for another director. They are also looking at finalising the cast so they can roll with the film, ASAP,” divulges a source close to the development.
The source goes on to add that 53-year-old Aamir Khan, who has reportedly not signed any new project after wrapping up his forthcoming film Thugs Of Hindostan, could play Gulshan Kumar himself.
We also hear that the hunt for other important characters has also begun at T-Series Films. Reportedly, the makers recently got in touch with Sonakshi Sinha for the role of one of Gulshan Kumar’s girlfriends. The actress is yet to give her nod, we hear.
Mogul is expected to hit the shooting floor by the end of the year.
