Karan Johar's magnum opus 'Takht' which is a period drama film set during the Mughal Reign is in the news for over two years now. Shooting of the film has been delaying for some reasons. Recently, the news came out that Karan is collaborating with T Series for the production of the film, to which the director clearly denied.
Head Honcho of Dharma Productions Karan Johar tweeted about the same and cleared all the air on rumours of acquisiton of Takht. He wrote , " News articles and speculations making the rounds about the acquisiton of #TAKHT are baseless and untrue! I would request media houses to focus on more relevant and critical issues that plague our country and refrain from incorrect reportage!"
All this started when the news of Fox Star Studios backing out from the project came out. Since it is a mega project, the company was in look for another studio partner and therefore news came that Dharma is collaborating with T-Series for the production of the film.
However, Karan has denied all of this and has termed it as baseless rumours. Shooting of the film was about to start in March 2020, however, due to Corona, everything has come to a halt.
'Takht' is a period drama film which will be set during the Mughal-Reign and will showcase a fictional adaptation of the battle between the two brothers Aurangzeb and Dara Shukoh.
It consists of an ensemble cast which includes Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Jhanvi Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor. The film is scheduled to release on 24th December, 2021.
