A few months back it was revealed that Akshay Kumar will be stepping into the shoes of the late music mogul and founder of T-series, Gulshan Kumar in the upcoming film titled Mogul.
However, the latest report suggests that Akshay has not only quit the film, but also returned his signing amount. Not only this, there are also reports that Aamir Khan has come on board for Mogul, as a producer for sure. The lead actor has not been confirmed yet.
A source told, “Aamir will produce this biopic, which itself is an important development. Whether he will play the lead is not yet decided. No other details are known as of now.”
Earlier there were reports that Akshay was not keen on doing the film due to creative differences with the makers. A source had told a leading tabloid, “Akshay has come concerns over the script that director Subhash Kapoor has greenlit. He requested a few things be rewritten. But, Subhash was adamant. Hence, Akshay thought it was best if he opted out.”
On the work front, Akshay is currently busy promoting his upcoming movie, PadMan release on 9th February, 2018.
On the other hand, Aamir Khan is busy shooting for Thugs Of Hindostan.
