The MeToo movement caused a barrier to the production of Gulshan Kumar's biopic titled Mogul. After sexual harassment accusations against Subhash Kapoor, the makers of Mogul have ousted Subhash as the director of the biopic. Moreover, Aamir Khan too has stepped out of the project to support MeToo movement.

Amidst the revolution, reports suggest that the makers of the movie who are yet hunting for another director for the project, have signed Sonakshi Sinha to play the lead role in the movie, which is slated for 2019 release.

Commenting about the same, a source revealed to a leading daily, "Sonakshi Sinha has been approached for it. The film dates back to the '70s and '80s and the team was looking for a heroine, who could exude that retro vibe."

According to the reports, Sonakshi Sinha is yet to sign the deal even though the actress has greenlighted the project through verbal communication.

Adding further, the source said, "It's a small, but meaningful role. Sona will only need to shoot for a few days. When she heard the script, she liked it and told Bhushan that she would do it. But the modalities still need to be worked out."

Talking about the casting of Mogul, reports state that the biopic will feature three actresses. About the same, the source said, "It will depict the entire life of the music mogul. Sonakshi will play one of his girlfriends before marriage. The film is being designed on the lines of Sanju, where several A-list actors made small appearances. But among the three girls, Sona will have the most prominent part."
