The biopic of late Gulshan Kumar – the pioneer who bought a revolution with his company T-series has been in talks ever since its announcement. During the course, it has bought in a fair share of controversies, firstly Akshay Kumar opted out of the film and Aamir Khan was roped in then director Subhash Kapoor was slapped with sexual misconduct allegations and Aamir opted out of the film demanding the exit of Kapoor from the project.
Now, the news has surfaced that Subhash Kapoor has been disassociated from the project and Aamir has come on board again, he will also be co-producing the film.
A source close to the film commented: “The script is close to Aamir and he wants to make the film. Bhushan and he have had a number of meetings since and decided to collaborate on Mogul again. The hunt is on for another director. They are also looking at finalising the cast so they can roll with the film as soon as possible.”
When Subhash Kapoor faced the wrath of the #MeToo movement, Aamir issued a statement on Twitter that read: “Two weeks ago, when traumatic #MeToo stories began emerging, it was brought to our attention that someone we were about to begin work with has been accused of sexual misconduct. Upon enquiry we found that this particular case is subjudice, and that the legal process is in motion. We are not an investigative agency, nor are we in any position to pass judgment on anyone — that is for the police and judiciary to do. So, without casting any aspersions on anyone involved in this case, and without coming to any conclusions about these specific allegations, we have decided to step away from this film.”
