Music mogul Gulshan Kumar’s life is all set to get a cinematic treatment and singer Tulsi Kumar says Akshay Kumar is the perfect choice to play her father on the big screen.

Directed by Subhash Kapoor, the film, titled “Mogul”, will chronicle Gulshan Kumar’s meteoric rise in music. Tulsi, 31, says there are a lot of similarities between her father and Akshay when it comes to leading a disciplined life.

“There are a lot of similarities between Akshay and my father. Akshay is a Punjabi and so are we. He is Delhi-based and my dad was also from Delhi. I think he would be able to pull off the character.”Akshay is very hard working and disciplined. My dad’s journey was also all about hard work and his love for music. I think all these things will come together. Akshay is perfect for ‘Mogul’,” Tulsi said.
