Akshay Kumar is all set to be seen in one more biopic next year. Yes, the actor is all set to play music mogul and founder of T-series, Gulshan Kumar in the upcoming film titled Mogul.
The movie will be produced by Gulshan’s wife Sudesh Kumari and directed by Subhash Kapoor, who helmed Akshay’s last release, Jolly LLB 2.
An interesting fact is that Akshay always shared a great bond with Gulshan. Talking about the biopic, the Khiladi Kumar stated, “I had the good fortune of knowing Gulshanji well. My association with him started right from my first film Saugandh.
We both shared many things in common and come from a similar background. And I am very excited to play him-on-screen.”
While Gulshan’s son Bhushan said,” Mogul is not a film for me. It’s my dream come true. My father has been my guiding force all through my life and I have always felt his presence with me in everything I do. I always knew that one day I would make Mogul and share my father’s amazing story with the world. I am also extremely happy that my mother Sudesh Kumari will be producing the film. And I can think of no one better than Akshay to play him-on-screen.”
Director Shubhash added,”When Vikram Malhotra shared the idea of the film with me, there was a feeling of disbelief. I always told my team that the one story I would love to make a movie on was Gulshanji’s, and here I am doing just that.”
As Tulsi Kumar, Gulshan’s daughter is celebrating her birthday today, the makers decided to announce the film today, as he was extremely close to her.
The film is set to go on floors by the end of 2017 and the first poster of the film is unveiled today. In the poster, we can see Akshay’s silhouette appearance as Gulshan ji.
