Corona Virus Impact: Karan Johar’s Takht , Dostana 2 May be Dropped
The Corona Virus is bound to have far-reaching repercussions on the entire Indian film industry. One hears from very reliable sources that Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions may drop two of their most prestigious products from their 2020-21 anvil.
The Karan Johar-directed historical Mughal costume drama Takht featuring an array of stars like Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Alia Bhatt is now a project in the ‘red’ zone.
Says a source, “Takht was already an endangered project, what with controversies regarding its content and the scriptwriter being accused of a communal tweet. Still, Karan may have gone ahead with it. But now with the viral situation , Takht is strictly a no-can-do project for all concerned.”
That’s not all. Dharma Production, which closed its office temporarily this week,may also have to re-think , restructure and even drop some of their other projects like Dostana 2 and the Deepika Padukone-Sidhant Chaturvedi starrer that was recently announced.
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala on the other hand will continue his production plans as per schedule.
Nadiadwala’s Heropanti 2 is expected to start shooting in July 2020.
