BOLLYWOOD: ‘Takht’ the Karan Johar period film has Bollywood’s finest Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Anil Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor in pivotal roles.
‘Takht’ can be likened to being the Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham of the Mughal-era. We can expect extreme betrayal with the tropes of royal court politics.
This heralds Karan Johar’s return to big screen direction since his the 2016 release, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil‘. The film is set to go on the floor this March 2020.
Karan shared the teaser video for Takht, that opens to an empty golden throne and a voice over drones: “Mughal shehzaadon ke liye Takht ka raasta apno ke taboot se hokar jaata tha. Agar yeh raasta mohabbat se hokar jaata toh shayad Hindustan ka itihaas kuch aur hota.”
