#BoycottTakht: Will Karan Johar Be Forced To Shelve The Film

 #BoycottTakht: With  the  campaign  to  boycott Karan  Johar’s  proposed Moghul costume drama, Takht, gaining momentum, Karan  Johar is now  in a dilemma. He either  gets rid of his writer,  or shelves  the  project altogether.

Given the current situation it will be impossible  for Johar  to go ahead with what is  his  most expensive film to date.

The film’s  writer  Hussain Haidry’s tweet on  ‘Hindu terrorism’ has  created  a furore on  social media with  netizens offering Karan Johar  the option of either sacking his  writer  or offended  netizens  boycotting the  project.

 While Karan  Johar maintains a  studied silence  over the  controversy elements  close to his say he is seriously reconsidering the  project.

Says a  friend  of  Johar,  “He may decide  to drop the  project, since there is  no film without the writer. On the  other hand if the furore dies down  after a while he may consider  keeping Hussain onboard. But at  the moment  the option of  continuing  with  Hussain seems  unlikely, given the volume  of  protest.”

It  may be recalled that   in 2016  Karan Johar  was under attack for using Pakistan’s Fawad Khan in his  film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
