When Aamir Khan and wife Kiran Rao decided to step away from Bhushan Kumar’s ‘Mogul’ after sexual harassment allegations were set against director Subhash Kapoor, it seemed this would be the end of the film. However news has it that with the director now out of the project himself, Kumar has managed to get Khan back on board, and has approached Rajkumar Hirani to direct the project.
“Mr. Hirani read the script and loved it. He is contemplating it. Aamir has also told him to think about it. Since they both share a great rapport, there is a possibility that he will step into the director’s shoes. But as of now, nothing is confirmed,” Pinkvilla reports a source stating.
‘Mogul’ will tell the true story of T-Series label founder Gulshan Kumar and his rise to success. The film is set to have a 2019 release.
