Akshay Kumar: Nobody besides me can play Gulshan Kumar
Akshay Kumar who is currently prepping for the release of his upcoming sports drama ‘Gold‘ featuring television actress Mouni Roy feels that nobody besides him can portray the role of music legend Gulshan Kumar in his biopic, titled ‘Mogul’. Well, at the recently held event for his movie ‘Gold’, the versatile actor made the statement loud and clear about the same. We wonder why did he back out of the movie in first place, seems Akshay is regretting his decision to do so.
Revealing Akki’s actual words when he was questioned who could play the part well in ‘Mogul’ if not him, the ‘Khiladi 420’ actor said, “I don’t think anybody besides me.”
Well, if not Akshay, the makers of Gulshan Kumar biopic do feel that somebody other than him can play the part well and hence are on a lookout for the same. A few days back, a report suggested that Ranbir Kapoor, who was last seen in ‘Sanju’, has been approached by the producers of the film, Bhushan Kumar and Aamir Khan. However, Ranbir too backed out of the movie courtesy of his jam-packed schedule. As per a source close to us, the makers are now keen to rope in Sushant Singh Rajput for ‘Mogul’. The source said, “Sushant Singh Rajput has been approached now. He has read the script and shown interest. He might even give his nod and work out the modalities soon. This might be his next to next project.”
We hope that Sushant gives a heads up to the script so that the film goes on floors soon. What do you think?
