After MS Dhoni, Mary Kom and Geeta Phogat, the life of music legend Gulshan Kumar is set to be projected on the silver screen. But who will step into the titular shoes after the withdrawal of Akshay Kumar? Reports suggest that it might be none other than bollywood Superstar Salman Khan.
According to reports in DNA, Salman might take up the project after Akshay’s departure. Rumour had it that the Salman was upset with Akshay for signing up with Karan Johar for Kesari after the former actor’s withdrawal. But the reports were put to rest after Akshay made a special appearance at the Bigg Boss finale being hosted by Salman.
As far is Mogul is concerned, sources convey that the reason behind the PadMan actor backing out is uncertain.
A leading daily quoted a source as saying, “We don’t know whether it’s a date issue or whether Akshay had issues about certain controversial aspects of Gulshan’s life. But he has decided to not do the film. He has even returned the signing amount.”
A report in DNA has earlier suggested that Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan would be producing the film under his banner. The report further stated that Akshay Kumar has even returned the signing amount but if Aamir will play the role or not yet remains to be seen.
A source was quoted as saying by DNA, “Aamir will produce this biopic, which itself is an important development. Whether he will play the lead is not yet decided. No other details are known as of now.”
