Speculations were rife that superstar Akshay Kumar is no longer a part of Bhushan Kumar’s ambitious project, Mogul. And today, all speculations turned true when Khiladi Kumar himself confirmed that he is not doing the much-awaited biopic.

During a media interaction in Mumbai, when the national film award-winning actor was asked about his presence in the movie, he said, “No I am not part of it. I am not doing it,” he confirmed, adding, “We did not agree on the script”.

Mogul is a biopic based on the life of T-Series founder, Gulshan Kumar, who was shot dead in 1997. His son, Bhushan Kumar, wanted to make a film on his late father’s life for a long time. Finally, he announced the project last year, with Akshay Kumar in the lead role.

However, months after the announcement, reports started doing the rounds that Akshay walked out of the project citing creative differences. Today, the actor himself confirmed the news and put an end to all speculations.

Now, Mogul will be co-produced by Aamir Khan Productions. Rumours are rife that Aamir might play the lead character in it.

An official announcement is awaited over the news.
