Karan Johar's Takht NOT being shelved, to go on floors by December-January
Karan Johar is usually synonymous with his unique take on different kinds of love and relationships.
As a producer and more so as a director, he has brought out several facets of romance that exist between individuals.
After his last directorial hit Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, the filmmaker has decided to completely change course and take up a subject that's not-so-conventional Karan, at all!
KJo announced his next - a magnum opus - titled Takht - a period drama which will revolve around the Mughal era and features an ensemble cast with the likes of Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anil Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor. Recently, there were a few reports that claimed that Takht has been temporarily shelved, after Dharma Productions received a huge setback due to the failure of Kalank.
But we can assure you that the film is definitely on track. A source working on Takht, assures us, "The team is currently working rigorously to get the research material and everything in place.
There's a separate room in Dharma, where they brainstorm and look out for pictures to set up the scenario from the Mughal era, that the film is based on. How the houses were, how the warfare looked like - all of it is being properly looked upon. A huge set will be built in Mumbai and work on that will also begin soon. As of now, Takht will roll out by the end of 2019 or early next year around January 2020."
