One of Karan Johar’s most awaited and talked about initiatives, Takht has lastly been shelved after an extended wait. The movie was based mostly on the historical past of Mughals in India, telling the story of Aurangzeb and Dara Shikoh. The movie was to star Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal amongst many huge names within the lead ensemble forged.
After a the delays because of the lockdown, Karan has lastly determined to name off the venture for a number of causes. One of the explanations being that Fox Star which was producing the movie with Dharma backed out and Karan couldn’t get one other manufacturing home to spend money on the movie within the present scenario. A supply revealed, “Takht made no sense in the present context. It was meant to be an expensive historical costume drama, a collaboration between Karan Johar’s Dharma Production and Fox-Star. But Fox-star folded up and its replacement has been re-examining its long-standing relationship with Dharma Productions. Also, it was based on rather controversial Moghul history. Besides this, given the financial pitfalls Karan Johar has decided to shelve Takht and do a light-hearted romantic family film.”
Now that Takht is off the desk, Karan will focus on his subsequent rom-com, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani that stars Alia and Ranveer within the lead.
