Karan Johar on Takht: It is challenging but also exhilarating

After Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016), Karan Johar will be directing a film after 3 years. This time, he is venturing into making a period drama film called Takht. Everyone is pretty excited to see the film which consists of a stellar cast like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar.

In an interview with DNA, Karan Johar got candid about directing a period film for the first time. He said, “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.”

The Kuch Kuch Hota Hai director also stated that Takht is quite challenging and exhilarating for him. As he has never done a period film before, he wants to do his own interpretation of that world and syntax. KJo shared that he is highly nervous and excited about the film and he’ll have to give his energy in making it.

About the star cast of Takht, Karan Johar said that he is collaborating with people he loved and respect and they all are making special efforts for the film.

Takht will go on floors by the end of 2019.
