Truth On Vicky Kaushal: Karan Johar Has Not Changed His Role In Takht
This morning, a new chain of speculations started doings the rounds of the Internet that filmmaker Karan Johar is rewriting Vicky Kaushal’s role in the upcoming multi-starrer project Takht to match up to Ranveer Singh’s role in the film. The Mumbai Mirror report read, “We hear the filmmaker has gone back to the drawing board and has rewritten Kaushal’s role in his upcoming film Takht to equal Ranveer Singh’s role.”

Vicky essays the role of King Aurangzeb whereas Ranveer Singh will be seen playing Shahjahan’s son, Dara Shikon. The success of his last film Uri: The Surgical Strike was said to be one of the reasons. However, a source close to film has learnt that there is no truth to these rumours. The script still remains the same. Karan Johar is not making alterations whatsoever and continuing with the original script.

Earlier, talking about the difficulties for shooting Takht, Vicky had told Rajeev Masand, “It's going to be a character that’s really going to demand a lot from me and that's what you live for as an actor to see life from a different perspective. It becomes very difficult to not judge that character, that's the hardest part to crack, changing your physicality, your language, this, that - you work towards it but mentally to just not judge the character and his actions and intentions and take him as he is and totally believe in it and to say that to yourself that "No, this is right". That's the trick and that's where you want to reach.”

Takht also stars Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar in important roles. Speaking of Vicky's other projects, he will be seen in Sardar Udham Singh in the lead role. His first look from the movie was recently released on social media.
