"IT'S OFFICIAL... Aamir Khan reverses his decision... Decides to work with director Subhash Kapoor in #Mogul... The Gulshan Kumar biopic will star Aamir in central role," he wrote.

The 'Dangal' actor's decision to quit the flick came after director Subhash Kapoor was found involved in a sexual harassment case last year.
In October 2018, Aamir took to Twitter to issue a joint statement along with his wife Kiran Rao stating that "at Aamir Khan Productions we have always had a zero-tolerance policy towards sexual misconduct and predatory behaviour of any kind".
"It was brought to our attention that someone we were about to begin work with has been accused of sexual misconduct. So, without casting any aspersions on anyone involved in this case, we have decided to step away from this film," read the statement.

Aamir, while talking to a leading daily, opened up about why decided to reverse his decision.
“I am just doing what my heart says is right, and what my conscience tells me is right. At that time I felt that was the right step to take, so I took that. Today I feel differently. I am going with my heart. Perhaps some people will be critical of my decision. But I have to live with my own conscience,” the 'Dangal' actor Hindustan Times.
The '3 Idiots' star clarified that he still supports the #MeToo movement.
''Of course I fully support the MeToo movement. And I urge women who have complaints to formally lodge them with their ICC (Internal Complaints Committee), which every organisation must mandatorily have. Just to clarify, the case of Mr Kapoor was not a case of workplace misconduct, hence could not be investigated by an ICC,” the 'Dhoom 3' star told the daily.
On the professional front, Aamir Khan will be next seen in 'Lal Singh Chadda' which is official Hindi remake of the Hollywood classic 'Forrest Gump'
