Due to coronavirus pandemic , many filmmakers had postponed the release date of their films. In this Karan Johar who was planning to release his film Takht on grand scale have to wait , as the shoot of the film is remaining and this is not good. But before the team can rework on the whole film again, Karan has decided to move ahead with another project that he has ready in hand.
According to a report in Pinkvilla, producer source tells them, “Karan was already working on another script from earlier this year, which he wants to direct. When the Corona outbreak started, Karan was already in talks with his team and then, he decided to go ahead with the second script he had in hand. The film is a romcom in the space that KJo specialises in.” We also hear that it will be Ranveer Singh who will step into the lead role. “Unlike Takht which has a huge ensemble, this film will be a solo lead hero starrer which will have Ranveer playing to the gallery. Ranveer and Karan discussed the idea and he really liked it. Everything is in place and they will soon chalk out a schedule to roll the movie.” This will be Karan’s first association with Ranveer as a director, since this one starts before Takht.
On the workfront, Ranveer is working in YRF’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar and ’83 which are ready for release and will hit screens once theatres open up. Apart from that, he’s also in talks with Zoya Akhtar for a gangster drama and Karan’s next will now also be added to that list.
