Aamir Khan to co-produce Gulshan Kumar biopic; reason for Deepika-Ranveer choosing November 15th as wedding date

The news is that Aamir Khan who had quit The Gulshan Kumar biopic post sexual harassment allegations against the director Subhash Kapoor, will now produce the film.

The biopic of the late T-Series founder will be co-pruduced by Kumar’s son, Bhushan Kumar(the current owner of T-Series) and Aamir Khan. Bhushan Kumar too faced sexual harassment allegations by several women, which however seems to have reached a dead end.

According to a Mumbai Mirror report, Aamir is now back to not just co-producing the film (tentatively titled Mogul) with T-Series chief Bhushan Kumar, he may also play Gulshan Kumar if all goes as planned.

“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,” Mirror quoted an unnamed source.

Incidentally, Aamir had quit the project on October 10. Announcing his decision on Twitter, he issued a statement 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,” it added.

Thereafter, despite Subhash Kapoor claiming innocence, Bhushan Kumar fired him from the project.
