It’s going to be a bit difficult to play warring brothers but I’m looking forward to working with him.”
At the same time, Takht is already facing a boycott by some fans who demand an explanation from filmmaker Karan Johar related to content of the film being Anti-Islam. However, Karan was quick to knock down any such controversy and replied “My dear, you are talking to a filmmaker who’s directed a film called ‘My name is Khan’ My sensitivities to religions across the world will always be on point. That’s something I believe in as a human being, as a citizen of this great country and generally as a world citizen. Sensitivities to everyone and everything are something that we all take very deep care of. Also, with Takht, this isn’t a story that I wrote. History wrote this story, I’m only telling it.
