Akshay Kumar signs Gulshan Kumar’s biopic ‘Mogul’ at the Lord Shiva temple in Maheshwar

Akshay Kumar seems to be on a sudden spree of signing biopics. After his wife Twinkle Khanna’s production venture ‘Padman’, and Indian hockey team leader Balbir Singh’s biopic ‘Gold’, Akshay has gone ahead and signed another biopic based on the life of T-Series founder, late Gulshan Kumar. The biopic is titled, ‘Mogul: The Gulshan Kumar Story’.

Gulshan Kumar and Akshay Kumar


Both for Bhushan Kumar and Akshay, this film has enormous sentimental value. While Akshay had instantly given his nod for the film, the formal agreement with T-Series was yet to be inked as Akshay was away shooting his next.

Bhushan was delighted when Akshay called him over to Indore (where he is currently shooting) and suggested that they do the formal signing in front of the famous 300-year-old Lord Shiva temple in Maheshwar.

It is well known that Gulshan Kumar was an ardent follower of lord Shiva.

The signing was done in the early hours of the morning and Bhushan was accompanied by the film’s writer -director Subhash Kapoor and co-producer Vikram Malhotra.

Talking from Indore, Bhushan said, “Signing my father’s biopic inside a Shiv temple was surreal. I could feel my father’s presence with me sitting there next to the idol with Akshayji. I have no words to express what I felt.”

Talking about casting Akki, Bhushan Kumar said at Noor‘s event, “Akshay is the apt choice for the role because he has many similarities with my father. Both are Punjabis and believes in Vaishno Devi. There are more similarities like this which you will see in the film.”

Speaking about the film he said: “It is an emotional film for us. We are all attached to this story because it is a story of my father. Whoever has been associated with the film be it Akshay or Subhash Kapoor all are emotional about the project.”

Mogul’s filming is scheduled for 2018. The film would showcase the journey of how Gulshan Kumar became a devotional singer and then the changemaker in the music industry of Bollywood. Meanwhile, Akshay has ‘PadMan’, ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, Rajinikanth’s ‘2.0′,‘Crack’ and many other projects in the loop.
