Sushant Singh Rajput approached for Mogul

Buzz has it that Sushant Singh Rajput, who was last seen in Dinesh Vijan’s reincarnation drama Raabta (2017), has been approached to topline in the much-talked-about project, Mogul, which is a biopic on T-Series founder, Gulshan Kumar.

If reports are to be believed, the makers have also narrated the final script to Ranbir Kapoor. However, the Sanju (2018) star has yet not given his nod to the project, perhaps because of his busy schedule. Reportedly, Singh has a bunch of free dates. So, if Ranbir says no to the film, the makers might lock Sushant for the part.

When the movie was announced by producer Bhushan Kumar in 2017, Akshay Kumar was onboard to star in it. However, due to some creative differences over the script, he walked out of it, leaving the makers in the lurch.

After Kumar’s exit, several names have been thrown in for the role, but the makers are yet to lock an actor for the high-profile feature. We hope an official announcement regarding the male lead is made soon.

Mogul, to be directed by Subhash Kapoor, is being jointly produced by Aamir Khan Productions and T-Series Films.
