BizAsiaLive.com reported recently that Fox Star Studios had bowed out of a collaboration with Dharma Productions for Karan Johar’s upcoming directorial ‘Takht’. It’s now emerged that T-Series might’ve been brought on board.
A source explained to Box Office Worldwide, “Karan has been trying to get a studio partner on board since it’s a big budget film and requires constant inflow of money. He is planning it on a massive scale, and making the film without a studio was never a feasible option. He had multiple conversations with LYCA Productions from South too, but the two could not reach a common ground and the deal was called off”.
Johar is thought to have met Bhushan Kumar and this join-up will be the first time they work together.
‘Takht’ is currently in the pre-production stage.
