Aamir Khan’s Gulshan Kumar Biopic Set For a Christmas 2019 Release
Aamir Khan made an announcement earlier this year that he is co-producing Mogul, the Gulshan Kumar biopic, along with leading music label T-Series. The film is set to be directed by Subhash Kapoor of Jolly LLB fame. Slated to hit screens next year around Christmas, the filming is likely to begin early next year.
T-Series made this announcement via Twitter on 26 July:

In the meantime, Aamir will be working on his action-adventure film, Thugs Of Hindostan based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. His production house will also be releasing the Hindi version of Kamal Hassan’s Vishwaroopam 2 which will be hitting the theatres on Diwali this year. Interestingly, many of Aamir’s films like 3 Idiots, PK, Taare Zameen Par and Dangal have released during the Christmas period.
Back in 2017, Akshay Kumar unveiled the first look of Mogul. However, due to creative differences, he stepped out of the project.
Gulshan Kumar was the founder of the T-Series music label (Super Cassettes Industries Ltd.), and a Bollywood movie producer who released hit films like Aashiqui, Bahaar Aane Tak, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin, Ayee Milan Ki Raat, Meera Ka Mohan, and Jeena Marna Tere Sang. He was shot dead outside the Jeeteshwar Mahadev Mandir in Mumbai on 12 August 1997, leaving his empire to his younger brother Krishan Kumar Dua and son Bhushan Kumar.
