Talking about Akshay playing his father Bhushan Kumar said in a recent interview, “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.”
