Recently, Karan Johar announced that he is making a period drama movie which will release in 2020. The movie gained momentum because of the talented cast. It is a cocktail of all actors and above all directed by Karan Johar.

The star cast of the film is: Ranveer Singh will be playing the role of Aurangzeb’s elder brother, Dara Shikoh. Super-talented Vicky Kaushal will be playing the role of Aurangzeb. Alia Bhatt will be playing the role of Dara Shikoh’s wife, Begum Nadira Banu. Kareena Kapoor Khan will be playing the role of Jahanara Begum Sahib the eldest daughter of Shah Jahan. Shah Jahan who built the Taj Mahal, and the fifth Mughal emperor, is the father of Dara, Aurangzeb, and Jahanara, will be essayed by Anil Kapoor. Bhumi Pednekar is playing the role of Dilras Banu Begum who was Aurangzeb’s first wife, and eventually, she died a year before Aurangzeb ascended the throne. It is said that Dilras Banu was his favorite. Jhanvi Kapoor is playing the role of Hira Bai, who was a young slave girl, who Aurangzeb fell in love with.

Takht is an intense movie which revolves around the subject of Mughal emperor, Aurangzeb and his brother Dara Shikoh. After Aurangzeb’s rule, the Mughal empire started weakening, and this was a very dark period in the history of Mughals in India. Their greed for the throne, the feuds about the rightful and deserving heir, the love stories, betrayals, politics inside the administration and the relationship between the blood members, and their motives make a compelling story.

Aurangzeb and brother Dara Shikoh’s fight for the Mughal Imperial Throne or the ‘Takht’. It was the ‘Peacock Throne’ which was a famous jeweled throne and was the seat of the Mughal emperors of India. In Urdu it is called ‘Takht-i-Jahangir’, back then built by Jahangir. It is located at the Diwan-i-Khas, which is in the Red Fort Agra.

For the first time, we will be seeing Vicky Kaushal playing the negative role of Aurangzeb. In the end, it was him who emerged victorious using malicious tactics, because what mattered to him was only victory and power. Ranveer Singh will be playing a whiter character this time as he was the only appropriate candidate for the throne after his father, Shah Jahan. Father and sister Jahanara both of them supported Dara Shikoh for the throne but ultimately that never happened. Dara is defeated, Shah Jahan is imprisoned and later joined by his eldest daughter Jahanara till his death in 1666. Aurangzeb takes the throne, and later sister and brother patch up, and he gives her the title, Empress of Princesses.
