Karan Johar grabbed everyone's attention at showbiz when he announced his multi-starrer magnum opus Takht last year in August. The film, which has an ensemble star cast of Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Janhvi Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor, is all set to roll almost 18 months after its announcement.
According to a leading daily, the magnum opus will kick off in the last week of February in a start-to-finish schedule over 170 days. A source close to the production revealed, "Karan is working on the final edits of the script, while the team has been zeroing in on dates that are suitable for all actors. While several actors can work on their portions individually, Ranveer, Vicky and Kareena have several shots together, and are hence needed during the same shooting window."
Takht is a historical drama that narrates the story of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb and his brother Dara Shikoh, and their fight for the throne. The film is slated to release in Diwali 2020.
