    When Takht was announced some years back, almost everyone was thrilled and was excitedly waiting for its release. Apart from the fact that it would have Karan Johar venture into a period drama for the first time as a director, the star cast was something to look at. However, fans were heartbroken when it was shelved. However, that does not mean it will never be made. In fact, Karan Johar himself has now confirmed that he will get back to making the film after he finishes Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. 

    Speaking to Film Companion, Karan Johar said, "I am going to make that movie right after Rocky Aur Rani. That film is a piece of my heart, it will not get away. It’s got 2 and a half years of my prep. We prepped for 2 and a half years, we were rearing to go. I still remember we were to start on 24th April, when the pandemic hit us in March, and because it 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. 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 focusses on the interrelationships of that era, those people and those people 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."

    Karan Johar will soon make his debut as a stand up comic with One Mic Stand. He is also helming Rocky Aur Rani, whose shoot is underway in Delhi.
