Since last one year, a lot has happened with the Gulshan Kumar biopic, Mogul. At first, Akshay Kumar was to be featured as the music Mogul, but then it came to a halt as Akshay Kumar returned the signing amount with a thank you note and said that he won’t be available.
Recently Akshay confirmed that he has left the movie as he had some ‘differences over the script’. Then the Bollywood perfectionist joined the movie as a co-producer and got the writer-director Subhash Kapoor to do some changes in the script.
Bhushan Kumar who is rolling his money on the movie based on his father’s life told a leading daily a few months back, “We haven’t finalized the lead, but we will have a younger star in the film.” Now according to some recent rumours, Ranbir Kapoor can be seen playing the character of Gulshan Kumar as he is the first choice of Aamir Khan and Bhushan Kumar.
A source close to the movie revealed that “Bhushan feels Ranbir will suit the character. Since he is a good actor and has a good market value as well, the makers felt he was the perfect choice to play Gulshan Kumar. They have even discussed the whole idea with him, but they haven’t arrived at a decision yet.”
Ranbir shares a warm relationship with Aamir and Mr. Perfectionist talked to him to star in the movie. “Aamir met the Kapoor scion and tried to convince him to do the film”, says the source. During the promotion of Sanju, Ranbir was asked if he would like to star in more biopics and at that time the star replied, “On the contrary, I enjoy challenges. I’m aware that an actor’s job is not like a nine-to-five one. And I actually look forward to pushing myself to do things that are out of the ordinary because it is part of my vocation.”
So will we get to see Ranbir doing another biopic? Time will tell.
