The film is expected to clash with Salman Khan’s Kick 2. The actor had recently surprised his fans by announcing his another film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali which will hit theatres on Eid, 2021. Talking about the film, producer Sajid Nadiadwala had said in a statement,
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala had earlier said in a statement, “I had started writing this film even before I started with Kick 2. Salman and I are collaborating after six years and it feels just like our Judwaa days back then. Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali is a film with a very different approach and we are sure the audience will love to see Salman in the avatar we have planned.” Opening up about Kick 2, he had added, “We are yet to lock the female co-star post which we will start working on the shoot dates. Kick 2 will happen in December 2021, I am in a process to finish writing the script.”
Talking about her prep for Takht, Janhvi Kapoor had recently told Hindustan Times in an interview, “Full-fledged prep will start soon. But when I signed the film, I immediately started learning kathak and Urdu. Although I knew we’ll shoot it almost a year later, I’ve been so fascinated by this era.” She had also added, “I feel it’s something that might come more naturally to me than contemporary roles because I’ve subscribed to that cinema more. I prefer watching older films. Mughal-E-Azam (1960), Pakeezah (1972), Umrao Jaan (1981)… I’ve been obsessed with them and can relate to them.”
