Karan Johar announced ‘Takht’ a few months ago, which was expected to go on the floors soon. However, it has faced several delays, with some suggesting that it could be down to the failure of his last multi-starrer, ‘Kalak’.
In a recent interaction with Rajeev Masand, Johar spoke about the debacle of ‘Kalank’. He said, “The person responsible for Kalank is me and no one else, I was the leader of that team. I think I got carried away with the film, and when Abhishek Verman had the idea of a palette that he wanted to give it and a certain vision, I was so sucked into that world that I lost complete objectivity. I gave everybody unnecessary wings to fly. That film had commendable talent with Abhishek, Alia, Varun, Sonakshi, Aditya, Sanju and Madhuri. I could have just helmed the film better.”
Johar then explained the reason behind the delay of ‘Takht’, to which he responded, “There was a reason for which I moved from September to February, as there were logistic issues, date crunching issues and long commitment from the actors. How does the stress of one film affects the other film, when both are totally different feature films? Have you asked me? I am making Takht. I have been making it since last two years and will be making it for the next two years.”
He added, “Yes, Takht is on a track. It starts in February, I am vastly excited and very very stressed out.”
