In the wake of the MeToo movement, the Gulshan Kumar biopic titled Mogul had serious impediments after its director Subhash Kapoor was accused of sexual harassment. The project was stalled by its makers under all capacities. In support of the MeToo movement, producer of the film Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao distanced themselves from the project.

Moreover, Subhash Kapoor was expelled from the director's chair as a mark of support to the victims of abuse. After Subhash Kapoor's exit from Mogul owing to the allegations, Bhushan Kumar got Aamir Khan back as the captain of the ship. Now, Aamir Khan and Bhushan Kumar are on a searching spree for a new director who can serve as a replacement of Subhash Kapoor. 

According to a report in a leading entertainment portal, Bhushan Kumar contemplated Rajkumar Hirani to helm the biopic and approached the acclaimed filmmaker with the script. It is reported that Rajkumar Hirani has loved the script, but is yet to confirm his involvement with the project.

A source close to the project revealed to a leading entertainment portal, "Mr. Hirani read the script and loved it. He is contemplating it. Aamir has also told him to think about it. Since they both share a great rapport, there is a possibility that he will step into the director's shoes. But as of now, nothing is confirmed."

If the reports turn out to be true, then this will mark Rajkumar Hirani's third collaboration with Aamir Khan after 3 Idiots and PK.

Meanwhile, Rajkumar Hirani's last release Sanju was also a biopic on the tumultuous life of Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt. The biopic, which starred Ranbir Kapoor in the title role roared high at the box office.
