Karan Johar is known for making big movies and this time, we think it’s going to be the biggest film of his career till date. The flick has been titled as “Takht” and it is a historical movie based on two warring brothers of the Mughal era.
The movie is slated to release in the year 2020 and recently Karan took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to announce its big star cast that includes Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anil Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor .
“I am so excited and honoured to announce the lead cast of #TAKHT

Karan launched Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar lately with the movie “Dhadak” that was an official remake of a Marathi movie “Sairat”.
Just as Karan announced the cast of the movie, he was trolled for nepotism. People started slamming him for choosing mostly those actors who have a filmy background and some people went on to ask sarcastically as to why he hasn’t casted Taimur in the movie.
Check out some selected tweets:
Arey woh apne Anil Uncle, unke Bhanje, Randhir Uncle ki beti, Mahesh Uncle ki beti, Sri devi Ji ki beti ko lelo. Arey Bhumi aur Vicky Kaushal ko lelo ji. Warna Nepotism me firse Muh kaala hoga twitter par.

His only concept of life is #Nepotism, Everyone is sure that Bhumi & Vicky will be having small roles.

Lol and then people get pissed off when Kangana says something about Nepotism! This picture screams Nepotism!
— Hammad Akbar (@BigSSfan) August 9, 2018
All nepotism except Vicky and Bhumi. Howcome someone like Kangna Ranaut never finds herself in movies being cast by you! Your insecurity?

You forget Taimur…..😂😂

Feeling bad for outsiders, especially actresses who don't even get half of the opportunities that Alia gets. Kjo loves to shove her down our throats. He really did serve her a career on a platter.

Talking about “Takht”, the film’s dialogues will be written by Hussain Haidry while the screenplay will be given by Sumit Roy. There is no doubt that Karan Johar’ s flick will be compared to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movies but every director has his own style of direction and we hope that he will do justice to the movie.
