I leapt at the opportunity to play Dara Shikoh: Ranveer Singh on his Takht role

 (Web Desk) – Ranveer Singh has fast become a favourite when it comes to historical films in Bollywood.

After projects like Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat to his credit, he is now set to play the role of Prince Dara Shikoh in the upcoming Karan Johar-directed epic, Takht.

Takht stars other Bollywood A-listers like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anil Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Janhvi Kapoor to name a few; the movie revolves around the battle for the Mughal Empire’s throne.

Talking about his role, Ranveer says, “Takht is an amazing story. I leaped at this opportunity to play Dara Shikoh (the eldest son and heir-apparent of the fifth Mughal emperor Shah Jahan), who is one of the most fascinating characters that I’ve ever come across. A hero in the truest sense.”

He’s also grateful to be working with KJo: “I’m very excited to be working with Karan Johar for the first time. 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.”

Takht is scheduled for a 2020 release.
