Vicky Kaushal won hearts when he stepped into the industry with his first leading role in Masaan in 2015. After making an impact in that film, Vicky's fan base grew gradually and the actor's impressive skills were on display with multiple projects in 2018. From Manmarziyaan to Raazi, Vicky Kaushal became the talk of the town. Then came Uri: The Surgical Strike in January 2019 and Vicky Kaushal delivered his first blockbuster hit and also rightfully earned the title of the nation's crush. 

After raking in big money at the box office, the actor has quite a few films lined up. And one of them is Karan Johar's multi-starrer Takht. Now, according to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Karan Johar has taken into account Vicky Kaushal's rising star status and gone back to the writing table. 

The report states that Karan Johar has rewritten Vicky Kaushal's role in Takht for a meatier one. It adds that the rewritten role will equal Ranveer Singh's role in the film. Vicky will be essaying the role of Aurangazeb whereas Ranveer will be seen as Dara Shikoh, elder brother of Aurangzeb, who was killed by the latter for the throne.

Based on the story of Mughal history, Takht includes an ensemble cast of Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Anil Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor. 

Do you think Vicky Kaushal has clearly emerged as the hero? Let us know in the comments below.

I have a feeling we will be hearing that TAKHT will be shelved. And movie goers will be saved from disaster.

vickey is extremely cunning. he acts all innocent, but he's actually cunning and sly

I see that annoyingveer's pr is already losing its shit

Stickyvicky's pr is losing its shit as well (hence this article)

multi starrers do not work. period.

either you try to expand everyone's roles to equal lengths to feed their ego and end up with a massively long film.

or you cut some roles and character arcs and lose your friendship and cast .

we know what karan will choose to do.

vicky is a one hit wonder.
you make it seem like sanju sold because of vicky.

sure uri did but such was the political climate at the time.

WALK OUT RANVEER.

KJO ONLY SUPPORTS ALIA AND HER BEAU.

ALSO HE IS GIVING FLOP AFTER FLOP. DROP HIM.

The negative character outshines the protagonist's character if it's well performed. e.g. SRK in Darr, Langda Tyagi (Saif) in Omkara and Khilji in Padmavat. Shahid was awesome in Padmavat but unfortunately (for him) the sheer negativity of Khilji took over the audience. So a lot depends on the actor. If Vicky can nail it, then he will be remembered. Both Ranveer and Vicky are great actors so they will shine in this film or without it. Vicky I feel is better than Ranveer though, given his range from Masaan to Raazi to Manmarziyaan. Ranveer is great too, but only Vicky could have done Masaan :)

Suit up Vicky! PR Singh's trolls will attack you left right and centre just as they did Shahid during Padmavat.

Raveer singh had hits only because of slb and his affair with deepika.
Vicky will do well as long as he sticks to his talent.
Kjo alia is a joke.
peiod films and kjo #dud

Simmba a blockbuster, Gully Boy a super hit, Band Baaja Bahrat, Gunday

I don’t think Vicky is a snake (like someone said here below). However, if this is true that his role has been increased to match Ranveer’s, then Ranveer needs to be smart and walk out. Whoever has the better written character will shine, they are both very capable actors but there’s nothing you can do if your character has less scope than another. Aurangzeb was tyrant and if anyone’s watched Vicky Raman Raghavan 2.0, you know he will sink his teeth into that character. Just like RK ru s from any project with RS already in it (Gully Boy - RK was offered Siddharth’s role) RS needs to be aware of KJo’s agenda is. I love both of them and I don’t want to see mudslinging between the two.

Uri movies would have worked with any hero , same is the case of Sanju, queen etc
This Vicky is one movie wonder , totally overrated

Loooooool, nothing will save crusty takht with Karan’s involvement. KJo needs to accept his era is over and if Ranveer has any sense whatsoever, he’s steer clear from this “film”, heck Kareena better escape too... talent, save yourselves!!!

Ranveer is the bigger star he will and can walk out of the movie the minute the script is changed to suit Vicky. Even in Padmaavat Ranveer got the bigger part because he was a bigger star than Shahid. Ranveer for all his clownish persona is super smart.

Oh man...what’s with all the comments. I think they are both good actors and hope the movie turns out well- only problem is KJo...

Vicky Kaushal is much better than Ranveer Singh, he has super acting talent,he is intelligent in giving interviews, he is a good host in award shows. Kjo is right to give him a good role. Ranveer Singh acts his roles well but he over acts and looks like a clown. PV post this, is coming from Europe from a non-Indian person, so I am not taking sides

Nepokid Vicky is beyond desperate. That's why his pr is hyping him up months before filming even begins.

Ranveer is a nepokid too.

Being distantly related to Anil Kapoor's wife does not make you a nepokid. Ranveer has connections, yes, but he is in no way a nepokid. If he was a nepokid, then Karan would've made him join his camp

This will be an epic flop backfire. Karan is trying cash in on Vicky's popularity, but he has no creativity, trust me Aurangazeb will be EXACTLY like Khilji, and they did the same thing there in Padmavat, overdid it with Khilji, it killed a movie that was supposed to be about a love story so strong she'd burn before she's betray her husband and her Rajputs, instead of an evil idiot. Audience will get tired of that formula twice in a row.

Ranveer's PR will make KJO look like the villain and make "poor RS" look like the underdog for the millionth time!! KJO beware!!

U are very wrong, kjo is the villain here trust me

Kjo wants to make takht flop just as kalank . poor Ranveer first flop after many blockbusters

Karan is snake why Ranveer work with them

Vicky lost his mind you are no where close to Ranveer's stardom and acting

Ranveer only does over-acting and he tries to overpower in every scene. Hope Vicky's true talent puts an end to the over-hype around Ranveer

I don't like this Vicky Sticky.. he is too yucky.

I don't like Vicky either. He's overrated both in looks and in talent. He's extremely yucky.

Says a Ranveer Singh Fan...hahaha...Irony died a hundred deaths here ((-;

I hope they do chop off ranger's role. and for those crying about KJO playing foul...Padmavat yaad hai? remember what SLB did to Shahid's role for his "baba"??

There's some months left before filming even commences and Vicky's pr is already hyping him up and putting Ranveer down. Vicky is such a pathetic loser.

He has a sincerity and earnestness that PR Singh lacks. Baaki may the best man win

Fair enough! Vicky is better than Ranveer for sure.

Karan Johar just wants to end the good luck streak that Ranveer has with periodic films and replace him with one of his gang members. This is his evil plan.

He is nowhere near Ranveer but his PR making wonders.

Exactly. Ever since Vicky joined the Kjo gang Vicky's PR is in overdrive. First with the fake link up rumors with Katrina and now this. They haven't even started filming and Vicky's PR is already trying to act like Vicky will perform better. Plus it doesn't help that Kjo is directing this film. KJo and Vicky are snakes.
