It was a couple of years ago when Bhushan Kumar announced the film Mogul, a biopic on his father Gulshan Kumar. Akshay Kumar was supposed to play the lead role. But, it was last year when Aamir Khan replaced Akshay Kumar as the male lead and also came on board as the co-producer of the film. However, after sexual harassment allegations against the director Subhash Kapoor, Aamir opted out of the film.
Recently, while talking to a daily, Bhushan Kumar confirmed that Aamir is still co-producing the film but didn’t reveal if the actor will play the lead role in the biopic or not. He said, “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.”
“It’s an important and emotional film for us and that is why it is taking time. We want to make it the best. I am not in a hurry for it because it is not a commercial film for me. Whatever comes, I will have to donate it. That is our family’s thought process since the beginning. We will be announcing the actor very soon. That actor definitely needs seven-eight months to adapt into it. The film will start somewhere in 2020,” he added.
Now well, let’s wait and watch which actor will be seen as Gulshan Kumar on the big screen.
