Takht is the story of two brothers- Dara Shikoh and Aurangzeb, and their sister Jahanara Begum. Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the role of Dara Dhikoh, Vicky will be seen portraying Aurangzeb in the film. the role of Shah Jahan will be enacted by Anil Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen playing the role of Jahanara, daughter of Shah Jahan.
On Neha Dhupia's talk show, Karan Johar said “Takht is the most passionate piece of material that I think I will ever direct. I’m hugely passionate about it. I’m obsessed about the Mughal era ever since I can remember. That’s the one part of history that I was obsessed about in terms of its visual texture, its controversial content, the political betrayal, the love, the lust, the decadence, the debauchery, the madness, the violence, everything. That era is exotic and it’s gorgeous. It’s absolutely beautiful.”
He had also said that Takht is going to be the K3G of the Mughal times. He added “It’s like the K3G of the Mughal era. But it’s more extreme, there is more betrayal. It has the tropes of court politics. It’s so rich in texture.”
The recent film that Karan produced was Kalank but could not prove itself at the box office. The film starred Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead role.
