Mogul is on Aamir’s radar

The actor has started reading through the updated script and might give his nod soon

Aamir Khan took time during the lockdown to read through the script of the Subhash Kapoor-directed Mogul.

Khan, who was shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha before the lockdown started, has not gone through any other fresh idea, as he understands that it will take a long while for things to get back to normal, and he would rather read a script closer to when it can be made.

“Aamir is a one-film person. Hardly has he multitasked in the past many years — he works on his looks, his physique, and on conditioning his mind to work on the film in hand. And that is the case with Laal Singh Chaddha too. But he still has the film Mogul in mind and read a few parts of Subhash Kapoor’s updated script,” says an industry source.

Aamir had signed the film initially also as a producer with Bhushan Kumar. It is a biopic of the late music baron Gulshan Kumar and one of the most important projects from the T Series banner.

But following allegations of sexual harassment during the #MeToo movement against Kapoor in October 2018, Khan decided to opt out of the film, stating, “Without casting any aspersions on anyone involved in this case, and without coming to any conclusions about these specific allegations, we have decided to step away from this film.”

Eleven months later, in September 2019, Aamir said that he was back in the film and gave the green light for  Kapoor’s next project with Richa Chaddha, a film called Madam Chief Minister — said to be on the life of former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati.

“I couldn’t sleep at night because I used to constantly feel that my actions have inadvertently caused a person, about whose guilt I have absolutely no idea, to lose his right to work and earn a livelihood,” Aamir had shared then.

It has to be noted that Akshay Kumar was the one who was first signed for the film, but he backed out over several differences. And Aamir Khan stepped into his place.

Aamir Khan-Saif Ali Khan to collaborate after 19 years for this remake project

Latest reports claim that the actors have come together for the official Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster film Vikram Vedha.

Aamir Khan’s Mogul, a biopic of Gulshan Kumar, made headlines for various reasons. The actor’s fans are excited to see him in the special role. But the actor quit the film last year after #MeToo accusations were made against its director Subhash Kapoor. He later revealed that he will be making a comeback with the same project as he felt that his actions have inadvertently caused guilt to a person.

As per the latest reports, Aamir Khan will be keeping Mogul on hold and join the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster film Vikram Vedha. This will happen once he wraps up the shoot of his upcoming film Laal Singh Chadda, which is an adaptation of Forrest Grump.

Aamir Khan will be joining hands with Saif Ali Khan for the Hindi remake and they will be collaborating with each other after 19 long years. Saif and Aamir have verbally come on board to star in the project and soon they will sign the dotted line.

Aamir will be seen playing a most-wanted gangster, played by Vijay Sethupathi in the original. Saif will step into the shoes of R Madhavan’s character of a cop. The husband-wife duo Pushkar and Gayathri who helmed the original will direct this remake as well while Neeraj Pandey, who’s also co-producing this film along with Y Not Studios and Reliance Entertainment, has written the screenplay.

As per the sources, the film has been scheduled to go on the floors in April next year. The film doesn’t require any specific preparation as it is a universal subject and a remake, the makers are planning to complete the shooting in two-three months. The recce for the film is likely to begin in January in Lucknow and Hyderabad.

A few weeks ago, the actor announced he would be acting in the film too.

This will be Aamir Khan’s next film after Laal Singh Chaddha, and it’s not Mogul

After the release of Laal Singh Chaddha, Aamir Khan will start this film instead of Subhash Kapoor’s Mogul.

We all know Aamir Khan’s next film is the Forrest Gump remake, Laal Singh Chaddha, also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan and being directed by Secret Superstar’s Advait Chandan. The film is all set to release on Christmas 2020, on the very same day as Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey, directed by Farhad Samji and starring Kriti Sanon as the female lead.

Last year, before the release of Thugs Of Hindostan, the T-Series honcho, Bhushan Kumar, announced Khan had come on board as the co-producer of his father, Gulshan Kumar’s biopic, Mogul. And a few weeks ago, the actor announced he would be acting in the film too, sparking a major debate on social media. However, a report by PeepingMoon states the actor will begin the remake of the Tamil film Vikram Vedha after completing Laal Singh Chaddha.

Sources say the actor will be playing the role of a dreaded gangster that Vijay Sethupathi played in the original, whereas Saif Ali Khan, who has come on board too, will essay the role of a cop, which was played by R. Madhavan. The original directors, Pushkar and Gayatri, will helm the remake too, and Neeraj Pandey will write the screenplay. The film was earlier offered to Shah Rukh Khan but things didn’t work out.

A source, while talking about the film, stated, “The film has been scheduled to go on the floors in April next year. Both Aamir, who kicks off Laal Singh Chaddha on November 1, and Saif, who’s Jawaani Jaaneman and Tandav are in the pipeline, are expected to finish their respective commitments by then. Considering the film doesn’t require any specific preparation, the makers are planning to complete the shooting in two-three months. The recce for the film is likely to begin in January in Lucknow and Hyderabad.”

This is the first time Aamir Khan has as many as three films on his platter simultaneously, someone who’s notoriously famous for being selective on his film choices. Saif’s future repertoire doesn’t look less exciting either. Laal Kaptaan, Jawaani Jaaneman, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and the Vikram Vedha remake are titles that are worth rooting for. Hopefully, they should deliver enough bangs for our bucks!

Guilty until proven innocent? Aamir Khan’s U-turn on #MeToo accused director sparks debate

‘Perhaps some people will be critical of my decision,’ the actor told one newspaper. ‘But I’ve to live with my own conscience.’

Soon after the MeToo movement hit India in October last year, actor Aamir Khan and filmmaker Kiran Rao issued a statement on Twitter distancing themselves from Mogul, the Gulshan Kumar biopic they were producing. Khan was supposed to act in the film, portraying the man who founded the T-Series music label before going on to produce films. Mogul was being directed by Subhash Kapoor.

In 2012, actress Geetika Tyagi had accused Kapoor of attempting to molest her. After the incident, Tyagi confronted Kapoor about the incident and recorded a video of that encounter. In 2014, Tyagi filed a case against him, which resulted in director being arrested. He was later released on bail.

In their statement last year, Khan and Rao said, “We are not an investigative agency, nor are we in any position to pass judgement on anyone – that is for the police and judiciary to do. So, without casting any aspersions on anyone involved in this case, and without coming to any conclusions about these specific allegations, we have decided to step away from this film.”

However, in an interview to the Hindustan Times on Monday, Khan announced that he was back on board for Mogul. “I’m just doing what my heart says is right, and what my conscience tells me is right,” he said. “At that time I felt that was the right step to take, so I took that. Today, I feel differently. I’m going with my heart. Perhaps some people will be critical of my decision. But I’ve to live with my own conscience. So, I’ve done what my heart and conscience feels is right.”

In an interview with Mid-Day, Tyagi said that she had commended Rao and Khan last year because their gesture had encouraged more women to speak up about their own experiences of sexual harassment. She said she had not solicited their support. “Now that Subhash has been hired back, it’s not like someone [from their end] reached out to me,” she said. “It would have been a fair game had they considered both sides of the story.”

She added: “I have never said that Subhash shouldn’t get work. But after I complained, I did not get work for a long time. The industry is patriarchal. Only women face the repercussions of complaining against sexual harassment, whether in the workplace or otherwise. They are ostracised when they complain.”

Actress Tanushree Dutta, who had accused actor Nana Patekar of inappropriate behaviour last year, criticised Khan’s decision to work with Kapoor on Mogul.

“How come nobody in Bollywood has sleepless nights when a woman becomes a victim of abuse and is not able to work due to the trauma and ostracisation,” Dutta told Mid-Day. “If he has agreed to hire this guy, why not hire the woman who suffered the consequences of his actions? Why do only the creepy men of Bollywood get compassion?”

The incident has started a debate on social media about whether Khan should work with someone accused of sexual harassment.

Is Khan’s decision justified? After all, according to the law, Kapoor is innocent until proven otherwise. Is Khan being criticized unnecessarily? Or will Aamir Khan’s decision to work with Kapoor be a setback to the #MeToo movement in Bollywood?

‘Would’ve been fair if Aamir Khan considered both sides’: Subhash Kapoor’s #MeToo accuser on rehiring him for ‘Mogul’

Aamir Khan rehired Subhash Kapoor without even talking to his #MeToo accuser, or so she claims

Aamir Khan surprised one-and-all when he made a massive decision. The superstar is back on track with Gulshan Kumar biopic, titled Mogul. Not only has he backed the movie as a producer and is acting in it, but Aamir has also roped in #MeToo accused Subhash Kapoor as the director for the movie.

Knowing that he would be questioned for his decision, Aamir Khan gave a lengthy interview where he justified his action by stating that he felt guilty and had sleepless nights thinking a person was unemployed because of his big decision. Aamir also stated that in order to make a decision, he and his wife Kiran Rao met other females who worked with Kapoor.

Astonished by the U-Turn which Aamir took, the #MeToo accuser of Subhash Kapoor gave an interview to Mid-Day claiming this episode feels strange. She said, “I had commended Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan [last year] because it gave hope to more women to speak up about their own stories. But I had never asked for it from them.”

Tanushree Dutta reacts to Aamir Khan’s decision to join Mogul: ‘Compassion should be universal’

Tanushree Dutta has responded to Aamir Khan’s decision to rejoin Subash Kapoor’s Mogul. The film is being directed by Subhash Kapoor.

Actor Tanushree Dutta, who sparked the MeToo Movement of India last year, has reacted to actor Aamir Khan’s decision to work with director Subhash Kapoor. He was accused of sexual harassment by actor Geetika Tyagi five years ago, a case that picked up wind again last year with the movement.

Talking to Mid-day, Tanushree said, “How come nobody in Bollywood has sleepless nights when a woman becomes a victim of abuse and is not able to work due to the trauma and ostracisation… If he has agreed to hire this guy, why not hire the woman who suffered the consequences of his actions? Why do only the creepy men of Bollywood get compassion? Let the girls also see some of that saintly do-goodery.”

“Compassion should be universal. If it’s so selective as is being displayed by the Bollywood’s bigwigs, then it’s not compassion. It’s convenience and ignorance. Nobody bothered to ask me how I was doing when my livelihood was snatched away after the Horn Ok Pleassss harassment episode. No compassion for me, Aamir?” she added.

Aamir and his filmmaker wife Kiran Rao had decided to quit Mogul last year on learning of the accusations against Subhash. He wrote a long post voicing his support towards the MeToo Movement and also talked about it at length on Karan Johar’s show Koffee With Karan. However, even then, he had mentioned how he was staying up at night thinking about whether he caused an innocent man to lose his job.

Aamir Khan’s shocking U-turn!

Aamir’s decision has now set the grapevine buzzing.

Aamir Khan, who likes to portray a holier-than-thou image, has justified his decision of working with #MeToo accused, Subhash Kapoor. In a recent interview to a publication, the actor revealed that he decided to be a part of this project as he was troubled that his action might have cost Kapoor his right to work! And that’s when he and wife Kiran Rao decided to interact with a handful of women who had worked with Kapoor in the past. He also wrote to IFTDA (Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association) informing them about his decision to return to the film.

Aamir’s decision has now set the grapevine buzzing. “Rumour is that Subhash Kapoor went to Aamir Khan and asked him to help out as he has not been able to move ahead with other projects because of Aamir’s withdrawal from the film. Taking cognizance of the fact that it was also affecting his family, Aamir decided to get back to the project and get him back on board as well,” says a source.

Another film industry veteran, however, feels that it could just be hogwash. “Aamir will release Lal Singh Chadha during next Christmas. How will he have the time to do that film if he has eyes already on the Mahabharata as well as on the Osho biopic? Subhash has a few projects ready, including a Mayawati biopic and is not finding a studio because of the Aamir issue. Now, with Aamir’s announcement, it will be easy for Subhash’s career to move ahead. By the time they reach the bridge to cross it, there could be yet another U-turn,” insists the veteran.

Aamir’s decision now is clearly a paradigm shift from the stance he had taken when stepping out of the project. Last year, the actor had sent out an official statement saying that he would not be working in this film. “At Aamir Khan Productions we have always had a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual misconduct and predatory behaviour of any kind… Two weeks ago, when traumatic #MeToo stories began emerging, it was brought to our attention that someone we were about to begin work with has been accused of sexual misconduct,” Aamir had said.

Here’s why Aamir Khan agreed to work with MeToo accused Subhash Kapoor in ‘Mogul’

‘Mogul’ was initially offered to Akshay Kumar but things didn’t fall into place and now Aamir Khan will be seen playing the titular role of late Gulshan Kumar on-screen.

When the MeToo wave hit Bollywood last year, several big names came to the fore, leaving the fans shocked. One such name was that of ‘Jolly LLB’ filmmaker Subhash Kapoor. After he was accused of sexual harassment, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan turned down his directorial venture ‘Mogul’, a biopic on Tseries honcho Gulshan Kumar.

But after a year the actor has finally decided to be on board the project. In an interview with Hindustan Times, he opened up on why he took the decision to work with Subhash Kapoor.

Aamir said, “Of course I fully support the MeToo movement. And I urge women who have complaints to formally lodge them with their ICC (Internal Complaints Committee), which every organization must mandatorily have. Every accusation of sexual misconduct must be investigated thoroughly and rigorously by the concerned ICC, and strict action should be taken against people found guilty. Just to clarify, the case of Mr Kapoor was not a case of workplace misconduct, hence could not be investigated by an ICC.”

When asked whether he feels his move will draw flak, Aamir added, “I don’t have any strategy. I’m just doing what my heart says is right, and what my conscience tells me is right. At that time I felt that was the right step to take, so I took that. Today I feel differently. I’m going with my heart. Perhaps some people will be critical of my decision. But I’ve to live with my own conscience. So, I’ve done what my heart and conscience feels is right.”

Mogul‘ was initially offered to Akshay Kumar but things didn’t fall into place and now Aamir Khan will be seen playing the titular role of late Gulshan Kumar on-screen.
