What was Ranveer Singh’s reaction when Karan Johar narrated him Takht? The actor reveals

There is no one like Ranveer Singh when it comes to being frank and straightforward. The actor recently appeared at filmmaker Karan Johar’s talk show, Koffee With Karan 6, and during the rapid fire around, was asked a question that most would like to dodge. However, Ranveer being Ranveer, answered it without giving a second thought.

The quirky actor was asked if he ever had inappropriate thoughts during the narration of a film, to which he quicky responded, “Yeah, I got a hop during Takht.” The actor divulged that when Karan, who is all set to direct Takht, was narrating him the film, he “got a ‘fulleshwari’ when that Hira Bai and Aurangzeb scene happens.”

To this, a blushing Karan said that Ranveer was not even a part of the scene. For those not in the know, Ranveer is playing Dara Shikoh, the eldest son of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, in the historical drama.

“But that’s the power of your writing, Karan. Narration mein ‘fulleshwari’. Kya baat hai!” the actor said further.

Talking about the film in an interview with news agency IANS, Ranveer had earlier said, “We’ve been wanting to collaborate for a long time and it’s finally happening and it’s happening in the best and biggest way possible.” (Karan Johar opens us about Takht being compared to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial ventures)

Takht, that also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Janhvi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor in the lead roles, is expected to go on floors in mid 2019. The film, produced by Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta under the film production banner of Dharma Productions, will release in 2020.
