While there have been rumours of delay and postponement of Takht’s shooting due to Kalank’s failure, the good news is that Karan Johar’s ambitious period drama is going ahead with the shooting as per plans.
Says a source close to Karan Johar’s Dharma Production, “People are presuming Karan is daunted by the prospect of helming another period film so soon after Kalank. But there’s no such thing. In fact, Takht had gone into production before Kalank released.”
Now, a report in a Mumbai tabloid claims that Vicky Kaushal’s role in Takht is being re-written and expanded to suit his new star status and to raise the importance of his role on par with Ranveer Singh.
Karan Johar dismissed the report with two words. “Utter rubbish!”
Another source very close to Dharma Productions described the report as a PR spin by those taking care of the URI star’s image.
However, the source cautions against the culture of pulling down one actor to glorify another. “Ranveer Singh is a far bigger star and has achieved a lot more than Vicky Kushal. Why cause unnecessary bad blood between them by putting out such baseless reports?”
