Mumbai: Karan Johar’s much-awaited period-saga, 'Takht', will go on the floors in March. Karan is currently on a recce in Jaisalmer. As per the plan, the film will go on the floors in March.

The director and his production team have made several visits to the shooting spots in the past. “Karan, along with cinematographer Mitesh Mirchandani, National Award-winning art director Sabu Cyril and his assistant directors will be in the desert city for the next five days to extensively analyse the locations and plan the cinematography and set designs.

 

Karan and his team will fly to several European locations, including Italy and France, on January 18 for another round of recce. “He’d always planned to spend January on the final round of recce and will be exploring locations similar to the landscape of Rajasthan in countries across Europe. Massive sets will be erected everywhere—from Jaisalmer to Europe—for which a mammoth budget has been earmarked,” As of now, the action scenes, as well as the costumes, have been locked for the film, which will also have battle sequences.

Karan's Takht has been described as the “epic battle for the majestic Mughal throne”. It’s a tale of two warring brothers, based on the fight for the throne between Shah Jahan’s two sons, Aurangzeb and Dara Shukoh played by  Superstar Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal. The film also features Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar in pivotal roles, with Anil Kapoor as the Mughal patriarch, Shah Jahan. “There will be some workshops in February with the entire cast to get a sense of their characters before moving on to the epic battle.”

The film will be shot in a start to finish schedule and is targeting a 2021 release.
