Karan Johar on 'Takht': my sensibilities towards religions will always be on the point
Filmmaker Karan Johar , who is ready to direct the period drama ' Takht ', he said that his sensitivities towards religions throughout the world will be right, since it is something he deals with. The masterpiece, which features Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Alia Bhatt , Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar, takes place in the Mughal era.
When asked how he will strike a balance in 'Takht' as Bollywood period films have often been criticized for endorsing Islamophobia, Karan told reporters, You're talking to someone who has directed 'My Name is Khan'.
My sensitivities to religions across the world will always be on point. That's something I believe as a human being and as a citizen of this great country and of the world. Sensitivity to everyone and everything is something we take very deep care of. ' Takht 'is not a story I wrote, history wrote that story. I'm only telling it, I added.
'Takht' marks Karan's first attempt at directing a period drama which traces the relationship between Mughal emperor Aurangzeb and his brother Dara Shukoh.
Hussain Haidry has written the dialogues of the film, scripted by Sumit Roy.
Karan was talking about the release of the trailer for his next production, 'Bhoot- The Haunted Ship', starring Vicky and Bhumi.
