Divya Khoosla Kumar (Bhushan Kumar’s wife), and Akshay Kumar have known each other well since long, Divya being Akshay’s co-star in Anil Sharma’s 2004 movie ‘Ab Tumhare Hawale Vatan Saathiyon’.
next A while ago, there was speculation that Khiladi Kumar had been approached for Divya’s next project, but he was apparently too busy to green-light the film. Now, rumours suggest Divya met Akshay recently and he agreed to join the cast.Also, Bushan Kumar announced the biopic of his father (late) Gulshan Kumar titled Mogul with Akshay Kumar in the lead.
Confirming the same, Bhushan Kumar said, “To make my father’s biopic is an extremely emotional feeling for me. It’s not just a film. My father is my guiding force in life and this film is my tribute to him. Akshay playing my father was my first choice. When I took the film to Akshay, he, not only said a yes immediately, but also never once discussed monies. Just like me, he too loves his father and for him being a part of Mogul is an emotional decision.”
“ Akshay Kumar will also be a part of my wife Divya Khosla Kumar’s directed film. Divya has been working on her script. While Akshay has liked the structure and zone of the film, Divya still wanted more work done. She is in no hurry and given that Akshay is a superstar, she doesn’t want to leave any stone unturned to give him the best script. She wants to take more time to develop it to her complete satisfaction post which they will start shooting for the same,” he further adds.
Divya has earlier directed Yaariyan and Sanam Re.
