Takht is a period drama and will be based on Mughals and the story behind the war of throne. It will narrate the story of Shah Jahan's successor Aurangzeb. Apart from Alia and Ranveer, the movie will star Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Jahnvi Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar in the lead role.

During Neha Dhupia's chat show No Filter Neha, Karan had talked about his project in detail. “It’s something that I’ve always chased and wanted to kind of put up there and finally when Sumit Roy, the writer, came to me with the story of Dara and Aurangzeb, which is pretty much the first time I’m saying that what Takht is about. I think it is that part of history that I’m so passionate about. I can’t wait to get into the prep mode which I’ve already started off.”

The movie is slated for a 2020 release.
