No Prem Kahani, Karan Johar Laughs Off The Reports Of Getting Alia Bhatt And Ranveer Singh For A Film- EXCLUSIVE
This week reports claiming that Karan Johar is all set to direct a new film entitled Prem  Kahani featuring Gully Boy duo Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh turned out to be as bogus as KRK’s artificial bravado. I asked Karan about the truth behind these reports and he very categorically denied them. A source close to Karan elaborated, “Karan is not looking at directing any project at the moment. His focus at the moment is  on seeing the long-delayed  Brahmastra to its completion. All his efforts are going into minimizing the  production costs as Brahmastra has gone  way  over-budget.”

As for Prem Kahani, that’s the title of the Raj Khosla 1974  film featuring Rajesh Khanna and  Mumtaz. Karan is a big fan of  Khosla’s cinema. He may have mentioned the film somewhere as being among his favourites.  But he is certainly not making a  film of that title. So what is Karan Johar directing next? It will in all probability be his long-delayed costume drama Takht featuring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia  Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Janhvi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Vicky Kaushal and Anil Kapoor among others.

Sources say the current financial situation being what it is, the original budget doesn’t work out. Karan is now looking at various options to go ahead with the project including the possibility of turning  Takht into a web series.
