The Real Reason Why Akshay Kumar Said No To The Gulshan Kumar Bio-pic

Was  it money  or was  it creative? Why did  Akshay Kumar suddenly decide to not do  the Gulshan Kumar bio-pic that  the music moghul’s son  Bhushan Kumar is  so  keen to make?

There are  many theories doing the rounds.  But a reliable source close to the  project spills the beans. “The fault  lies clearly with director  Subhash Kapoor who was asked to ready the script within a stipulated  time. Akshay had even set aside his dates accordingly. Since Subhash and Akshay had worked  together so  well in Jolly LLB 2 ,  the Moghul team at T Series  was  sure the results would be fruitful.  But then Subhash didn’t have the script ready on time.”

When probed  further on why Kapoor couldn’t complete the script, the  source revealed, “It is not entirely Subhash Kapoor’s fault. The  interviews with some of  the people Gulshan Kumar  knew closely didn’t materialize on time. Some of them said they  would speak later. Others  refused to meet Subhash pointblank. The reluctance  of  the interviewees to come one board caused a delay.Akshay likes all  his films to be completed within six months.Rather than wait he opted out.”
