Following the exit of director Subhash Kapoor from Mogul, the Gulshan Kumar biopic owing to allegations of sexual harassment against him, Aamir Khan is reportedly back to co-producing the project with Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.

To give you a brief history of the project, Akshay Kumar was earlier roped in to play the protagonist – an official announcement in this regard was made by the makers. However, the actor later opted out of it due to script issues. Weeks later, a formal announcement was made that Aamir had decided to co-produce the film with Bhushan.

Now, a report by Deccan Chronicle claims that Aamir is not just bankrolling the film but is also playing the lead role in it. In fact, he may even sit in the director’s chair for it for the second time after Taare Zameen Par (2007).

A source in the report has been quoted as saying, “Bhushan Kumar has almost convinced Aamir to play the lead. He also wants Aamir to direct Mogul. Right now, Aamir is reluctant to do so but Bhushan can be extremely persuasive especially with the zeros on the cheque.”
