Karan Johar To Ascend ‘Throne’

With the cast of the film in the bandwagon and the screen play of the film locked, the Karan Johar directorial Takht is expected to go on floors in April next year. Johar is directing the project and also co-producing it with Apoorva Mehta. Takht (meaning the throne and implies a seat of power), is a drama set in the Mughal times and will star Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Alia Bhatt in the lead.

After helming Ranbir Kapoor-Anushka Sharma-Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-starrer Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Karan will be donning the director's hat for Takht after two years.

Takht is said to be Dharma Productions first historical multi-starrer which will depict a battle for the majestic Mughal throne. Can't wait to watch these megastars coming together for the first time and showcasing their talent under the direction of none other than KJo himself. Like most Dharma Productions, the film is touted to be a dramatic story about family, love, succession and how ambition and greed change the dynamics of relationships. While Karan has not revealed the story of the film, speculation says it will revolve around the war between siblings Dara Shikoh and Aurangzeb. So, one can assume that Karan might be the reason why Kareena has agreed to come on board along with Ranveer Singh. Sharing the information, she wrote: "Back where I begun.to my roots!"

Scheduled to release in 2020, the screenplay of the movie is by Sumit Roy and the dialogues are written by Hussain Haidry.
