After shelving the “Mogul” – a biopic based on music giant Gulshan Kumar, due to Me Too allegation on the filmmaker, actor Aamir Khan reverses his decision and gives green light to the project.
Aamir Khan, who had discontinued his association with the much talked about Bhushan Kumar biopic titled Mogul last year, has re-joined the project both as the lead actor and producer.
The Dangal superstar had resigned from the project in October last year after Mogul director Subhash Kapoor was named in the #MeToo account of actress Geetika Tyagi. But now, he revealed in the interview that Subhash Kapoor’s case is currently in court without a definite timeline for the court to reach a decision and that Aamir learned that the filmmaker lost out on several other projects following his decision of not working with him.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the deeds on the project. He tweeted, “IT’S OFFICIAL… Aamir Khan reverses his decision… Decides to work with director Subhash Kapoor in #Mogul… The Gulshan Kumar biopic will star Aamir in a central role”
Aamir Khan and his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao will co-produce Mogul with Gulshan Kumar’s son Bhushan Kumar, which will only go on floors after Aamir wraps Lal Singh Chaddha.
Aamir Khan said he had initially considered Akshay Kumar, Varun Dhawan and Kapil Sharma for the role of T-Series founder Gulshan Kumar but he came on board after deals with none of them worked out.
