Reports have been making rounds that Karan Johar’s ambitious project titled Takht has been shelved due to a financial crunch caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Takht stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal Alia Bhatt Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar but will it be going on floors at all?


Karan Johar has put a rest to all these rumours as he revealed that Takht is not shelved but simply delayed. The filmmaker did not reveal the reason for its delay yet.

According to a report by SpotboyE, Karan confirmed, “Takht is not shelved. It’s just delayed.”  The report further said that Karan will complete Jugg Jugg Jiyo and the long-delayed Brahmastra post which he will devote his attention to Takht.

Earlier in an interview with DNA, Karan opened up about this ambitious project, he said, “It is scary. I was in a prep meeting with all the teams and suddenly they said, ‘Karan, you are looking a bit stressed.’ I told them I was feeling anxious. Each time I think of the scope of work that needs to be done, I feel intimidated. It is daunting and huge. It is challenging but also exhilarating. I’ve never made a period film and I want to do my interpretation of that world and syntax. I know period dramas have been attempted and achieved in Indian cinema. There is no point in me doing something that you have seen before. I need to give it my slant, my energy. I am hugely nervous but also excited.”

Let’s wait and watch when Takht finally releases.
