Not only us but even Karan Johar makes sure to answer the questions in his mind when Amitabh Bachchan takes the hot seat on Kaun Banega Crorepati and asks difficult questions to the contestants. Karan was elated and excited as he found out that he was the one who knew the answer to Big B's 1 crore question on the Tuesday episode. Well, all thanks to his upcoming directorial - Takht.
KJo recently posted on Twitter a picture of Amitabh Bachchan while watching Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 11. Karan excitedly shared the photo of Big B when he was asking the Rs 1 crore question to his contestant Himanshu Dhuria. While Himanshu could not answer the question on the Tuesday's episode, Karan tweeted saying that he knew the answer to the Rs 1 crore question. He also tagged Ranveer Singh in the tweet. He wrote, "I knew the 1 crore answer!!!!!! #DARASHIKOH and so would you have @RanveerOfficial #TAKHT." The question was - Whose Persian translations of several Upanishads is known as Sirr-e-Akbar. Karan tweeted the answer saying, "Dara Shikoh."

Sirr-e-Akbar (The Greatest Mystery) was a compilation of fifty Upanishads translated into Persian by Dara Shikoh. Dara Shikoh was the eldest son of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and the brother of Aurangzeb. He was widely known for his interest in the religious teachings of different faiths.
Karan probably knows the answer because the filmmaker is all set to direct the magnum opus Takht which will mostly feature Ranveer Singh as Dara Shikoh. Besides Ranveer, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anil Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal will also feature in the film. Takht is all set to release in Diwali 2020.
