After the failure of Karan Johar produced ‘Kalank’ (2019), rumors are rife that Johar’s next direction ‘Takht’ may not happen at all. Although, sources say that the two films are not related and Johar is in New York securing the funding for ‘Takht’.
A source revealed, “The budget of the film is indeed sky-high. But there was never a re-think over doing Takht. The failure of Kalank has nothing to do with Takht. Kalank was directed by Abhishek Varman, whereas Takht is being directed by Karan himself, his directorial undertaking since Ae Dil Hai Mushkil three years ago, and yes his most ambitious film to date. Karan’s film would cost anything from Rs 180-200 crore. Supplementary finances are being negotiated at this very moment,” as according to Deccan Chronicle.
‘Takht’ also boasts of a grand star cast including Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal.
