After superstar Akshay Kumar confirmed that he wouldn’t be headlining Bhushan Kumar’s ambitious project ‘Mogul’ due to some creative differences over the script, many new names are being thrown around as Kumar’s replacement for the role of T-Series founder and music baron Gulshan Kumar. Recently, there were reports that Ranbir Kapoor, who is riding high on the success of cine star Sanjay Dutt’s biopic ‘Sanju’ (2018), might come onboard to play Gulshan Kumar in the biopic. However, the makers have not confirmed any such development.
While several reports still state that Ranbir Kapoor is the makers’ favourite to step into the role of Gulshan Kumar, buzz also has it that Sushant Singh Rajput has also been approached for the biopic. According to reports, the makers want Ranbir in the movie. They have even approached Kapoor for the biopic. However, the star is yet to take the final call. On the other hand, Sushant Singh Rajput’s dates are free so it could be that he might topline the music maestro’s role in the biopic.
Aamir Khan Productions will jointly produce ‘Mogul’ alongside T-Series. The project will be helmed by Subhash Kapoor.
