Mr Perfectionist of Bollywood Aamir Khan, who had quit the biopic of T-Series founder Gulshan Kumar titled Mogul as the co-producer due to sexual misconduct allegations on director Subhash Kapoor has apparently come back on board since the filmmaker is not part of the project anymore. As per the Mumbai Mirror report, a source close to the film said, "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.”
The 53-year old actor had quit the project on October 10, where he announced it on Twitter, which 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.”
Talking about Mogul, the lead cast of the film, has not been announced yet. Though earlier, Akshay Kumar was roped in to play the titular character later he walked out at the pre-production stage. Well, we let's hope the makers rope in the new director and the biopic goes on the floor very soon.
