A wave of biopics is washing all over Bollywood and yet another addition to the list is Mogul, based on the life of Gulshan Kumar, founder of T-Series.

Biopics are a rage now and there’s no one who can deny that. We have seen multiple inspirational stories been told on the celluloid over the course of two years and upcoming slate of the same is even longer.

Last year T-Series announced that they will be making a biopic on Gulshan Kumar titled 'Mogul'. The movie will be directed by Subhash Kapoor.

Akshay Kumar was all set to play the lead in Mogul. He had even divulged the first look of Mogul. The movie was earlier in a fix due to Akshay Kumar calling it quits from the movie. It was also reported that the Bollywood superstar started re-assigning his dates to other projects, which he had previously kept at bay.

However, things were looking up for the movie as Aamir Khan has stepped in to produce it.

Trade expert Taran Adarsh took to social media to share the news about the release which will be directed by Subhash Kapoor and made under Aamir Khan's production house and T-Series jointly.

Taran wrote, "BIG NEWS... Aamir Khan Productions and T-Series to release Gulshan Kumar biopic in Christmas 2019... Written and directed by Subhash Kapoor... Filming to begin early next year"

Moreover, Mogul is likely to clash with Salman Khan starrer Kick 2 which is eyeing for a Christmas 2019 release.

Gulshan Kumar was known to be a religious man who build his brand largely relying on devotional music and Hindi movie soundtracks. He was shot dead outside a temple in 1997 for allegedly refusing to pay protection money to Dawood Ibrahim's gang. 

Earlier, talking about the project, Bhushan Kumar had said that Mogul is not just a film for him and also his dream come true. He said that his father had been a guiding force all through his life and he has always felt his presence within him in everything he does.

However, we still don’t know as to who will essay the character of Gulshan Kumar.
