Mogul, which is the biopic of the late Gulshan Kumar, was announced in the early 2017, with Akshay Kumar playing the role. Alas, he had some differences with the makers over the script and he quit the project. A few days ago, Aamir Khan came on board as the co-producer and Ranbir Kapoor was rumored to star in the film. But it seems even he won’t be able to portray the character.
A source says, “The makers want to go on floors by this December or next January. They will definitely release the film on Christmas next year. Ranbir doesn’t have dates anymore. He has already signed Shamshera and Luv Ranjan’s next. So he can’t start the film next year for sure.”
Now, reports suggest that Sushant Singh Rajput has been finalized to play Kumar. The same source said, “Sushant Singh Rajput has been approached now. He has read the script and shown interest. He might even give his nod and work out the modalities soon. This might be his next to next project.”
We really don’t know who is destined to essay the role of the late Gulshan Kumar, but we hope Sushant is the full and final choice! Bhushan Kumar said in one of his interviews recently they’ll announce the name of the actor in December this year. Let’s wait and watch!
