Last year, Karan Johar made the biggest announcement about his next directorial venture. The prolific director changed course and will now be helming an epic period drama set in the Mughal era. Titled Takht, the film will trace the journey of Shah Jahan's sons Dara Shikoh and Aurangzeb's chaotic argument and sibling rivalry.
The film features a huge group, including the likes of Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, Anil Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor. The movie is expected to be mounted on a lavish budget and will go on floors around January next year. But before that happens, there are several speculations surrounding Takht.

Recently, there were murmurs that Karan has reduced the budget of Takht, following the fate of Kalank at the ticket windows. Also, now a portal reported that Karan has also altered his script and increased Vicky's role. The story claims that owing to Vicky's meteoric rise post Uri, KJo decided to give him equal screen time with Ranveer.
But a source close to the development called this 'baseless' and 'untrue'. The informer tells us, "Nothing of that sort has happened. Karan's script has not changed even once since it was planned. No such alterations have been made to the narrative. Each actor has received the same script and has been informed about their roles. Everyone has an important part to play and contribute to the plot. There's no confusion and people shouldn't create trouble when there's none."
It would be exciting to see the plot once it is completed.
