For the first time in her life, Bhumi Pednekar is studying her history book without having to write an exam. However, her greatest ever test might be when she faces the camera for Karan Johar’s magnum opus Takht.

The actress has taken to the history books while in quarantine to better understand the nature and the context of the film, which is based in the Mughal era.


Takht, which will have to have a change in the shooting schedule, sees Bhumi in one of the most challenging roles in her career so far.

The film also features industry heavyweights like Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Ranveer Singh, and Anil Kapoor, and hence the actress is trying to understand the era by reading her school textbooks all over again.

“Most actors who are working in period dramas or real-life stories are basically doing what Bhumi is doing. It is important for a lot of people to pick up those books and notes because they forgot to really understand and grasp during school because they were doing it to write an exam. But now, it is for life lessons and so that is getting them hooked faster during the lockdown period,” says our source.
