The announcement of Mogul — the Gulshan Kumar story, the biopic on the emperor of music, which sees Akshay Kumar play the title character, is creating a great deal of excitement already.
Both for Bhushan Kumar and Akshay, this picture show has tremendous sentimental value.
While Akshay had instantly given his nod for the cinema, the formal agreement with T-Series was yet to be inked as Akshay was away filming his next.
Bhushan was delighted when Akshay called him over to Indore and suggested that they perform the formal signing in front of the famous 300-yr-old Lord Shiva temple in Maheshwar.
It is a well-known fact that Gulshan Kumar was a devout follower of Shiva. The signing was made out in the early hours of the morning and Bhushan was accompanied by the film’s writer -director Subhash Kapoor and co-producer Vikram Malhotra.
Speaking to us from Indore, Bhushan said, “Signing my father’s biopic inside a Shiv temple was surreal.
I could sense my father’s presence with me sitting at that place next to the idol with Akshayji. I have no word to convey what I felt.”
