Gulshan Kumar’s rags-to-riches life story was larger than life. He was an extremely talented singer and composer. His devotion to Mata Rani led him to great success. He created a whole new industry that didn’t exist before he formed his own company T-series into a leading music empire in the country. Thus, it comes as no surprise that his life story is being made into a Bollywood movie titled “Mogul” which is going to release next year.
Akshay said, “ I had the good fortune of knowing Gulshanji well and had a close association with his right from my first film, Saugandh. We both share many things in common and came from a similar background. I am very excited to play him on screen”.
Gulshan kumar’s son Bhusan Kumar added, “Mogul is not a film to me, it’s my dream come true. My father has been a guiding force all through my life and I have always felt his presence in every thing I do. I always knew that one I will make Mogul and share my father’s amazing story to the world. I am also happy that my mother Sudesh Kumari is producing the film. I think of no one better than Akshay to play him on screen.”
Subhash Kapoor said, “When Vikram Malhotra shared the idea of the film with me, it was a feeling of disbelief. I always told my team that one story I would love to make a movie on Gulshanji and here I am doing just that”.
Now a day’s Akshay Kumar is doing movie faster than the 4G speed. “Jolly LLB” was released last month, “Toilet: EK Prem Katha” already been wrap-up, his upcoming movie directed by Neeraj Pandey “Crack” is also releasing this Independence.
