MUMBAI MIRROR (March 20, 2017)

Bhushan Kumar recently announced the biopic on his father, Gulshan Kumar, titled Mogul, which will have superstar Akshay Kumar in the lead and will be directed by Subhash Kapoor. Meanwhile, there has also been speculation, over the past year, about a film to be directed by Bhushan Kumar's wife, Divya Khosla Kumar, with Akshay. However, so far there had been no confirmation from either side.

We recently spoke to Bhushan who confirmed both films, saying, “To make my father's biopic is an extremely emotional feeling for me. It's not just a film. My father is my guiding force in life and this film is my tribute to him. Akshay in the role of my father was my first choice. When I took the film to him, he not only said yes immediately, but also never discussed the remuneration. Just like me, he loves his father too and being a part of Mogul was an emotional decision for him. Akshay will also be a part of my wife Divya Khosla Kumar's next directorial. Divya has been working on her script. While Akshay has liked the structure and zone of the film, Divya wanted to work more on it. She is in no hurry and given that Akshay is a superstar, she doesn't want to leave any stone unturned in giving him the best script. She wants to take more time to develop it to her complete satisfaction, after which they will start shooting the film.“
