Akshay Kumar is no more a part of producer Bhushan Kumar’s ambitious bio-pic on his father the music baron Gulshan Kumar. Sources in the know say Akshay Kumar has decided against doing the film. “We don’t know whether it’s a date issue or whether Akshay had issues about certain controversial aspects of Gulshanji’s life. But he has decided to not do the film and even returned the signing amount,” says a source.
The buzz is that Salman Khan may instead play Gulshan Kumar. Moreover, this may also give Salman a chance to subtly get back at Akshay who he has an uneasy relation with, especially after the PadMan star chose to continue his partnership with Karan Johar to make The Battle of Sargarhi after Salman opted out of it.
Besides, as far as Gulshan Kumar’s controversial life goes, when has Salman shied away from controversies?
