Aamir Khan is going to produce Mogul, a biopic that is going to be based on the life and career of Gulshan Kumar, the founder of T-Series and one of the most influential producers in Indian film industry. However, Aamir isn’t going to star in the movie, and the makers are now looking for a male lead for the project. The biopic is reportedly being directed by Subash Kapoor. Akshay Kumar was attached to the project at one point, but it seems that he has backed away, and there were also rumors that Aamir is going to step into the shoes of the popular producer, but it seems that he is content with just producing.
Gulshan Kumar was born in a Punjabi family, in 1956, and was the son of a fruit seller, in Delhi. Being from a humble background, Gulshan found “Super Cassettes Industries,” and then began a music production company when his business proved to be successful. He was shot dead outside a Temple, in Andheri, Mumbai in 12 August 1997. D-Company was responsible for his murder. He was shot by a contract killer, Abdul Rauf Merchant, on January 9 2001.
The story surely has a dramatic subject matter, however, it seems that it could also be controversial because of the people involved in the death of Kumar. It is upto the makers, if they want to keep the perspective till his death, or also want to explore the aftermath. Aamir Khan has been busy with shooting Thugs of Hindustan, which is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Sheik and Katrina Kaif. It is being touted as the biggest budgeted movie of India, and is being made on a grand scale. It is scheduled to release on Diwali, November 7 2018.
