A source close to the development told to BollywoodLife that due to creative differences, Karan Johar’s directorial venture is now shelved. “Karan Johar’s ambitious project Takht has been shelved permanently. It was put on hold due to COVID-19 earlier. However, the team developing it have been having a hard time sort their creative differences and be on the same page,” the source told the portal.
The source further added, “While Takht may not be happening, Karan Johar has been working on a love story for which he is considering Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt as the leads.” Reportedly, Karan has been working on the script all through the lockdown and recently narrated it to both Ranveer and Alia who have loved it and have given their verbal nod to the film.
