The question now is, if Akshay Kumar is not playing Gulshan Kumar in the bio-pic then who is? Aamir Khan’s name is floating around. But it can said with utmost certainty that he won’t play Gulshan Kumar.
Says a source close to the development, “Aamir loved the idea of doing a bio-pic on the music baron Gulshan Kumar. His fascinating life-journey and the manner in which he changed the course of the music industry . Aamir immediately agreed to come on board as co-producer.”
Apparently Aamir has agreed only to be a producer on the project along with Gulshan Kumar’s son Bhushan Kumar. However the role of Gulshan Kumar won’t be played by Aamir.
Says a source close to the development, “They are looking at Salman Khan or Ajay Devgan. It has to be an A-lister. Bhushan wants to immortalize his father through this bio-pic.”
The problem is there are grey areas in Gulshan Kumar’s bio-pic (for example, his alleged hand in popularizing music piracy). And top-notch actors are wary of going there.
