‘Mogul’ is a film which has been doing the rounds in the news ever since the project was announced, due to several reasons. The film is a biopic based on the life of Bollywood’s movie producer and T-series founder Gulshan Kumar; which in itself sounds like an interesting movie concept to watch. Moreover, Aamir Khan was roped in to play the lead role- which he allegedly quit after the film’s director Subhash Kapoor was caught up in #MeToo allegations. But now, as reports have it, Aamir Khan is back in the project and they are on the lookout for a new director! And guess who they approached? None other than the “Mogul” of Bollywood Commercial cinema- Rajkumar Hirani.
As per sources, the renowned filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani has been shown the script and is deep in discussion with Aamir Khan and Bhushan Kumar about the project. There is a strong possibility that Hirani may take up the directorial helm of the project- considering his strong liking for the script and the past projects he’s done with Aamir.
Rajkumar Hirani forayed into the biopic segment with Sanju, his latest release on Sanjay Dutt’s life that was full of a lot of emotional turmoils that he faced. The biopic did really well at the box office too- and was critically appreciated. Could Rajkumar be looking to add another biopic to his directorial kitty? Or will he let go of the reins on Mogul and look for something else? Well, one can only speculate!
