Karan Johar


After the humongous success of Uri: The Surgical Strike (2019), Vicky Kaushal has become the latest toast of the town. Almost every filmmaker is keen to collaborate with him, and the ones who have already signed him for their next are making sure that they make most of the actor’s presence in their venture.

Some filmmakers are even rewriting his roles to ensure that the actor gets a handsome amount of screen time in their movies, and Karan Johar seems to be one of them. According to reports, Karan has rewritten Vicky Kaushal’s role in his next directorial venture, Takht.

Takht is a period drama, which also stars Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Janhvi Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar and Ali Kapoor in lead roles. Vicky Kaushal plays Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in the high-profile movie.

If latest reports are to be believed, now Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal both actors will have equal screen time in the movie. It is nothing but the effect of Vicky Kaushal’s last release Uri: The Surgical Strike, which went on to rewrite box-office history in Bollywood.

Besides Karan Johar’s Takht, the rising star also has acclaimed filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s Udham Singh. The film is a biopic on freedom fighter Udham Singh, who avenged the Jallianwala Bagh massacre (13th April 1919) by killing Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer.
