Karan Johar Reveals Takht's Poster
Producer Karan Johar has unveiled the release date for his forthcoming goal-oriented venture, Takht. He shared an Instagram story where we can see a poster of the period dramatisation which says 'December 2020' and is on the wall of the Dharma Productions' office.
Subsequent to demonstrating to us a look at the poster, the video takes us through a display with different film posters embellishing the dividers and closures at a collection of a few posters. Karan has united a huge cast involving Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Anil Kapoor.
“Takht is the most passionate piece of material that I think I will ever direct. I’m hugely passionate about it. I’m obsessed about the Mughal era ever since I can remember. That’s the one part of history that I was obsessed about in terms of its visual texture, its controversial content, the political betrayal, the love, the lust, the decadence, the debauchery, the madness, the violence, everything. That era is exotic and it’s gorgeous. It’s absolutely beautiful,” Karan had earlier said on Neha Dhupia’s talk show, No Filter Neha.
He had also said Takht will be K3G of Mughal era. “It’s like the K3G of the Mughal era. But it’s more extreme, there is more betrayal. It has the tropes of court politics. It’s so rich in texture,” he said in an interview.
Takht is the narrative of two siblings - Dara Shikoh and Aurangzeb - and their sister Jahanara Begum. While Ranveer will play Dara Shikoh, Vicky will exposition Aurangzeb's character. Anil will apparently play Shah Jahan and Kareena may play the role of his little girl, Jahanara.
Karan’s recent production venture, Kalank, had a dismal show at the box office and proved to be a major disaster. Starring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur, the film was also widely panned by critics.
