Ak­shay Ku­mar signs Mogul at a Lord Shiva tem­ple

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

The an­nounce­ment of Mogul - The Gul­shan Ku­mar Story — the biopic on the em­peror of music that sees ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar play the tit­u­lar role, is cre­at­ing a lot of ex­cite­ment. Both for Bhushan Ku­mar and Ak­shay, this film has enor­mous sen­ti­men­tal value. While Ak­shay had in­stantly given his nod for the film, the for­mal agree­ment with T-Series was yet to be inked, as Ak­shay was away shoot­ing his next film. Bhushan was de­lighted when Ak­shay called him over to In­dore (where he is cur­rently shoot­ing) and sug­gested that they do the for­mal sign­ing in front of the fa­mous 300-year-old Lord Shiva tem­ple in Ma­hesh­war.

It’s a well-known fact that Gul­shan Ku­mar was a de­vout fol­lower of Shiva. The sign­ing was done in the early hours of the morn­ing and Bhushan was ac­com­pa­nied by the film’s writer-di­rec­tor Sub­hash Kapoor and co-pro­ducer Vikram Mal­ho­tra. Talk­ing to us from In­dore, Bhushan said, “Sign­ing my father’s biopic in­side a Shiv tem­ple was sur­real. I could feel my father’s pres­ence with me sit­ting there next to the idol with Ak­shayji. I have no words to ex­press what I felt.”
