Is Takht jinxed?

When Karan Johar announced his dream project Takht exactly two years ago, in August 2018, we felt that it had the biggest star cast ever!

But for one reason or another, it could not go on the floors. Now, the industry is wondering whether the film can be made at all!


Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar were all part of the cast. It was to be a vehicle for Karan to prove his mettle after the lukewarm reception Ae Dil Hai Mushkil got.

“The venture was dogged by problems. There were issues with the casting and dates. Then the writer, Hussain Haidry, set off a huge controversy by tweeting ‘Hindu Terrorists’ multiple times. Though the tweet and the account no longer exist, Karan faced a backlash. Later, when the makers were ready to shoot at Florence, Italy, the lockdown happened,” say sources.

In May, Karan had said Takht would be made, but he wasn’t sure when. Karan is now in hibernation, and we wonder when he will make the next announcement. Meanwhile his latest release, Gunjan Saxena, starring Janhvi Kapoor is out on Netflix receiving good reviews.
