Akshay Kumar has announced yet another film that is in the pipeline. Interesting, how most of us never see this coming. Fans just wake up one morning and find out that Akshay is doing yet another film. After sudden announcements of Toilet - EK Prem Katha, Pad Man, Gold, we have another name added to the list. This one is titled Mogul. The movie will be a biopic on the life of music 'mogul' Gulshan Kumar. Mogul will go on floors later this year, and is slated to release in 2018, the same year as Reema Kagti's Gold and Twinkle Khanna produced Pad Man.
Gulshan Kumar is the name behind one of India's biggest music companies - T Series. During his lifetime, he etched his name in the heart of every Indian. He helmed devotional songs, and was loved by everyone for that. Akshay will be playing him in Mogul. Talking about the film, Akshay has said, "I had the good fortune of knowing Gulshanji well and had a close association with him right from my first film 'Saugandh'. We both shared many things in common and come from a similar background. I am very excited to play him on screen"
Mogul will be directed by Subhash Kapoor. Akshay and Subhash's last collaboration Jolly LLB 2 smashed box office records last month. No wonder they teamed up again for another venture. Subhash has said, "When Vikram Malhotra shared the idea of the film with me, it was a feeling of disbelief. I always told my team that the one story I would love to make a movie on was Gulshanji's and here I am doing just that."
Just yesterday, Akshay had announced that he has begun shooting for Pad Man. Seems like this and the coming year are going to be great for the actor!
