You're talking to someone who has directed 'My Name is Khan': Karan Johar on if he will endorse 'Islamophobia' in his multi-starrer 'Takht'


The makers of Bhanu Pratap Singh's Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship unveiled its trailer this afternoon and it sure looks terrifying. Starring Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar, the film is a horror-drama. The project which is set against the ruins of an ancient ship has generated the right amount of curiosity and anticipation among fans. And now, after much wait, the trailer of Karan Johar-backed Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship is out. 

At the trailer launch event, Karan was asked if his upcoming directorial Takht will be promoting Islamophobia or not. The director asked how he will strike a balance in Takht as Bollywood period films have often been criticized for endorsing Islamophobia. On this, Karan told reporters, "My dear, you're talking to someone who has directed My Name is Khan. My sensitivities to religions across the world will always be on point. That's something I believe as a human being and as a citizen of this great country and of the world. Sensitivity to everyone and everything is something we take very deep care of. Takht is not a story I wrote, history wrote that story. I'm only telling it."
