It looks like multistarrer films are back in vogue. After Shashank Khaitan's Kalank, make way for yet another ensemble cast film, the cast of which will blow away your minds! This morning, Karan Johar announced his next directorial venture - a film titled Takht, which has a stellar star cast that includes names like Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Anil Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar.
The film-maker revealed the teaser poster of the film on Twitter with an announcement that read, " I am so excited and honoured to announce the lead cast of #TAKHT @RanveerOfficial #KareenaKapoorKhan @aliaa08 @vickykaushal09 @psbhumi #JanhviKapoor @AnilKapoor #HirooYashJohar @apoorvamehta18 @sumit_roy_ @hussainhaidry."
Giving a sneak-peek into the plot of the film, Karan Johar spilled the beans in an Instagram post that read, " An incredible story embedded in history...An epic battle for the majestic Mughal throne... A story of a family, of ambition, of greed, of betrayal, of love & of succession...TAKHT is about WAR for LOVE....
Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor had previously worked together in Udta Punjab, but the leading ladies didn't share the screen space in the same. Expressing her happiness over being a part of this historical film, Alia posted on Instagram, "TAKHT ❤️❤️❤️ Iove you karan.. Can't wait to get back onto set with you... this time for this historical magnum opus! 🙌💫💫💫 So honoured to be a part of this magnificent cast.."
This will be Ranveer Singh's third period film after Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat. The actor who has always aced up challenging roles in the past wrote, "Proud, excited & honoured to be a part of KARAN JOHAR'S MULTI-STARRER HISTORICAL MAGNUM OPUS.#TAKHT @karanjohar @apoorva1972 @dharmamovies."
Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar who have always impressed us with their acting histronics are also a part of this film. Meanwhile, this is Janhvi Kapoor's second film after her directorial debut Dhadak.
With such talented cast on board, we just cannot wait for the camera to roll. Takht is slated to release in 2020.
