Mumbai: Mogul is a project that has been plagued with a lot of controversies ever since Akshay Kumar walked out. The latest news is that Aamir has instructed the makers to find a director, if they want his backing as a producer they will have to finalise a director as soon as possible. Aamir, in fact, recently revealed that his position on Mogul remains the same as before ever since he released the statement.
“Mogul has been pushed to the backburner for the moment. The makers are finding it a little difficult to get hold of the right director. They are juggling with a few names but are yet to finalise a name. Aamir too is not too keen to start Mogul soon as the dust over #MeToo has not yet settled,” said a source.
For the moment, Aamir is keen on starting Osho soon after Thugs. He is waiting for Shakun to send him the full bound script, post which he will officially announce the project. Sources say that the project could star both Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt.
