Bhushan Kumar Looking For “An Actor Bigger Than Akshay Kumar” For Mogul
The T-Series head Bhushan Kumar, who is making the most ambitious film of his life, did not confirm the final casting. It was expected that Akshay Kumar is lined up for the project, but Bhushan confirmed that Akshay Kumar is not a part of “Mogul” and also gave a statement which surprised us.
Bhushan said, “My father’s biopic is very close to me. That is the biggest announcement, we have made in our lives and we will confirm an actor soon. He could be bigger than Akshay Kumar.”
The film on his late father, the slain music mogul Gulshan Kumar, called Mogul is surely not happening with Akshay Kumar. Bhushan is now reportedly awaiting a Khan’s nod for the film.
The film “Mogul” is on his late father, the slain music mogul Gulshan Kumar and Bhushan Kumar is now reportedly waiting for a Khan’s nod. There were rumors that Bhushan contacted Aamir Khan to produce the film and then Salman Khan to play the role. Akshay has returned the signing amount.
A source close to the project reveals , “Bhushan had asked Aamir to produce the film along with him and possibly get Salman to play the lead. Bhushan has built a great rapport with Salman over the past many years and they are waiting for the formalities to be completed.”
However, recently Akshay Kumar was spotted at the trailer launch of ‘Nanak Shah Fakir’. There he was asked if he is still a part of ‘Mogul’, in which he is said to play the part of late Gulshan Kumar, Akshay Kumar said, “I myself don’t know yet.”
On the interesting note, before backing out of Kesari, Salman has praised Akshay and called him the biggest superstar of Bollywood as he strikes more money at the box office with his number of movies per year. To which Akshay disagreed and called him his senior and said Salman a huge star who earns bigger collections at the box office.
Salman and Akshay both superstars have big upcoming films in their bags. While Salman Khan is busy with the shooting of Race 3 and Bharat, Akshay have projects like Gold, Kesari and Houseful 4.
