Karan Johar recently revealed that his ‘passion project’ titled Takht is not shelved contrary to the reports surfacing online. Karan said in a recent interview that Takht is a ‘piece of his heart’ and he cannot let it go away. The ace filmmaker said that he will begin work again on Takht right after completing the Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh starrer Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.

In an interview with Film Companion, Karan said, “No, I am going to make that movie right after Rocky Aur Rani. I can’t let that get away. That film is a piece of my heart. It’s got two and a half years of my prep work on it. Wi were rearing to go. I still remember we were starting on April 24 when the pandemic hit us in March. The film was so vast, voluminous and on a large scale, that on a daily basis, it needed a thousand people on set. It was that kind of film.”


He further added, “It was an epic, period film based on the Mughal era. That again is a family film. It’s based in that era, but it is about on the interrelationships of that era, those people and those people that existed in the real world. I will always say, Rocky Aur Rani is my excitement project, but Takht is my passion project. And you cannot run away from your passion. So right after I’m done with my excitement, I’ll head towards my passion.”
