Coronavirus may have impacted businesses and lives across the world and in Bollywood too, several films have been postponed owing to the shutdown. Amidst this, several reports came in about Karan Johar’s magnum opus, Takht starring Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal. Reports recently stated that Takht may have been shelved owing to several reasons like the Twitter spat between writers, budget woes and now, the Coronavirus delaying the shooting commencement. However, amidst all such reports, Pinkvilla has learned from sources that Takht has not been shelved. 

As per exclusive sources, Pinkvilla has learned that Karan’s directorial about the Mughal era has not been shelved and will be made.
