Sonakshi Sinha today unveiled Noor’s Gulabi 2.0 in Mumbai. Also present at the event was producer Bhushan Kumar who had recently announced a biopic, Mogul, based on his father Gulshan Kumar.

Helmed by Subhash Kapoor, the film stars Akshay Kumar and is naturally close to Kumar’s heart.

Speaking at the song launch Kumar opened up about the project and stated that there are a lot of similarities between Akshay and his father.

He said, “It is an emotional film.  I am very attached to the story. There are a lot of similarities between Akshay and my father.”

At an earlier event calling Mogul his dream, Kumar had said, “Mogul is not a film for me. It’s my dream come true. My father has been my guiding force all through my life and I have always felt his presence with me in everything I do. I always knew that one day I would make Mogul and share my father's amazing story with the world. I am also extremely happy that my mother Sudesh Kumari will be producing the film. And I can think of no one better than Akshay to play him on-screen.

Talking about the 49-year-old actor being the first choice for the role he had revealed, “Akshay in the role of my father was my first choice. When I took the film to him, he not only said yes immediately, but also never discussed the remuneration. Being a part of Mogul was an emotional decision for him.”

While the flick’s poster has recently been released, the biopic will go on floors by the end of 2017.
