Filmmaker Karan Johar’s upcoming directorial ‘Takht’ has been delayed. And now, the director started working on a light hearted romantic comedy. According to the reports, the upcoming film will star Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead.
A source revealed that the film is a love story of two completely opposite characters. “The makers were on the lookout for a quirky yet relatable title and that’s when they zeroed in on Prem Kahani. The film is essentially a love story of two completely opposite characters, and the audience will get a glimpse of vintage Karan Johar, whose films at one point, were just meant to spread happiness, and take the audience in a fairy tale world.”
The source further added that the work is in progress with set designing. “It’s all work in progress with set designing and other aspects being looked after in isolation. The music settings have also begun, as being a romantic saga, there lies ample of scope for good music.
Apart from the actors Ranveer and Alia there is an exciting ensemble on board the film. The film Prem Kahani would mark Karan’s return to direction, four years after his Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai starrer ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. “Though a love story, this one is in a completely different space. While ADHM was intense, this one has ample comedy and fits in the definition of rom-coms that Bollywood, especially, the ones Dharma Productions is known for.”
Ranveer and Alia has previously worked in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. The actor are also part of the multi-starrer Takht, along with Anil Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Vicky Kushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Jahnvi Kapoor.
