Akshay Kumar will be seen in another hotshot movie, something that took everyone by surprise. After wrapping up ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ and ‘Pad Man’, ‘Gold’, in a pipeline he has once again announced yet another venture of his.
Akshay Kumar will be seen in Mogul which is a biopic and based on the life of music ‘mogul’ Gulshan Kumar.
Music Mogul Gulshan Kumar’s rags-to-riches life story was larger than life. He was an innovator and his devotional music made him a huge household name in India. He created a whole new music industry that didn’t exist before building his own company T-Series into a gigantic musical empire.
Akshay Kumar shares the first look of the film on Twitter. He wrote “My association with Him began with my very first film. He was The Emperor Of Music! Now know His story…
#Mogul, The Gulshan Kumar story!”

Produced by his wife Sudesh Kumari, the film to be directed by Subhash Kapoor will star superstar Akshay Kumar as the music mogul. The actor shared a special bond with the Emperor of music Gulshan Kumar.
Akshay said in a statement, “I had the good fortune of knowing Gulshanji well and had a close association with him right from my first film ‘Saugandh’. We both shared many things in common and come from a similar background. I am very excited to play him on screen.”
Gulshan Kumar’s son Bhushan Kumar added, “‘Mogul’ is not a film for me, it’s my dream come true. My father has been a guiding force all through my life and I have always felt his presence 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. I can think of no one better than Akshay to play him on screen.”
Subhash Kapoor said, “When Vikram Malhotra shared the idea of the film with me, it 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.”
Gulshan Kumar was extremely attached to his younger daughter Tulsi Kumar and thus, the film has been announced today on her birthday.
Shooting of ‘Mogul’ will begin end of 2017. The film is slated to release in 2018.
