Aamir Khan took a dig at music composer Nadeem Saifi of the Nadeem-Shravan jodi by playing a character loosely based on him in Secret Superstar. But, Aamir is not too keen on taking that to another level in Mogul, which he has finally given his nod to.
When the initial idea for the film on slain music mogul Gulshan Kumar was bounced off him, Aamir had specified that he did not want overt references on crime or the underworld to be made in connection with Nadeem’s character in the film.
“Nadeem was accused by the Mumbai police of killing Gulshan Kumar in 1997 with the aid of the underworld. Nadeem has fled the country and since settled in London. Three of Aamir’s films — Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin, Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke and Raja Hindustani — have had music by Nadeem-Shravan.
Aamir wants the human side of Gulshan Kumar to come out in the film rather than it being a chronology of the events in the life of the music company owner and film producer,” says a source. Incidentally, Nadeem is now waiting to see how Mogul turns out. “Nadeem will produce a biopic on his own life after the release of Mogul,” says our source.
