Gulshan Kumar was a big name in the entertainment industry, who was a prime face of devotional songs and established a music company T-Series.
Akki who had a strong connect with Gulshan Kumar said, “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.”
Gulshan’s son Bhushan Kumar is also excited and dubbed the project as one of his dreams.
“Mogul is not a film for me. It is 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,” said Bhushan.
Akshay has once again teamed up with the ‘Jolly LLB 2’ director Subhash Kapoor for ‘Mogul’. The film will go on floor by the end of 2017.
