Karan Johar Gets Set To Face His Biggest Challenge

Published

on

Here’s something  no one  knows about Karan  Johar’s  ambitious Takht. It’s  Johar’s most expensive , lavish, ambitious  and epic film to  date.

The budget, we hear, leaves  Karan’s earlier  opuses  like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, KabhiAlvida Na Kehna and Agneepath far behind.I mention these three Dharma  Production, as  so far they were  the  most expensive films Karan Johar had produced.

 Takht with its estimated budget of Rs.250 crores leaves  the other  Johar epics far behind.Apparently  the  star-studded  historical will  cut no corners.

Says a  source in the know, “Every star Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan,  Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednkar and Vicky Kaushal, is  being paid his or her market price. They’d have  happily taken a cut for Karan’s sake.But Karan insisted  on  paying  them  their market price.”

Would  Takht be more costly than  Karan Johar’s underproduction  sci-fi/mythological Brahmastra?

This Ayan Mukerjee-directed opus starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia  Bhatt and  Nagajuna  has gone  way over-budget.

Sources say, Takht could be an even more expensive  production.

“That’s why Karan was insistent that  Ayan  announce the  release date of  the long-delayed Brahmastra before shooting Takht. The  release date  for Brahmastra  is now  out( 4 December  2020) and  Karan starts  shooting Takht in March 2020,” says the source.

Incidentally  the poster  of  Takht was leaked accidentally in an email sent  out by Karan Johar’s marketing team .

Fans of Dharma  films love such accidents.
