Is Aamir Khan Going To Direct The Gulshan Kumar Bio-pic?

Now that the MeToo accused director  Subhash Kapoor has been  ousted  from the bio-pic on music moghul Gulshan  Kumar ,  Aamir Khan has decided to slip back into the  project.

To go back a  bit, Aamir had agreed  to collaborate with Gulshan Kumar’ son  BhushanKumar on a  biopic on  Gulshan after  the first choice Akshay  Kumar backed out,apparently due to scriptural differences.

 However Aamir had not agreed to  star in the  Gulshan Kumar bio-pic, only co-produce it.

But now I hear  from reliable  sources that  Aamir has  agreed to  play the titular role in  the  bio-pic to be titled  Mogul.

According to a source, Aamir has  consented to  lend his support  to the project after  the  original director Subhash Kapoor  was  asked to leave  at Aamir’s behest  as  he did not wish to work with a tainted  director.

However the ‘taint’ was  nothing new. Cynics  pointed out that  the allegation againstSubhash  Kapoor  was two years  old  and very much  in the public domain when Aamirhopped on.

Be as it  may, Aamir is back on board and  is likely to play the  eponymous role….and do more.

Says a source, “Bhushan  Kumar has almost convinced Aamir to play the lead. Bhushanalso  wants  Aamir to direct  Mogul. Right now Aamir is reluctant to do so. But Bhushan can be extremely persuasive specially with the  zeros on  the cheque.”

If Aamir agrees  to not only  play the lead but also  direct the Gulshan Kumar bio-pic   the project is bound to become much bigger than planned. Let’s wait and watch.
