While many were waiting for Karan Johar’s film ‘Takht’ to have some headway, it looks like fans will have to wait a little more for the period drama.

Karan went live on his Instagram on Sunday (June 6) and revealed to his fans that he has put ‘Takht’ on a back burner for now and is currently working on a new project - a light hearted comedy film titled ‘Prem Kahani’.

‘Prem Kahani’ will star Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. The film was supposed to go on the floors in May, but plans were hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic induced lockdown. As per reports, Johar pitched the movie to the actors who readily agreed to be a part of the it. 

Meanwhile, a source told Bollywood Hungama that ‘Prem Kahani’ will give audience ‘a glimpse of vintage Karan Johar’ and the preparation work for the film has already started.

"The makers were on the lookout for a quirky yet relatable title and that's when they zeroed in on Prem Kahani. The film is essentially a love story of two completely opposite characters, and the audience will get a glimpse of vintage Karan Johar, whose films at one point, were just meant to spread happiness, and take the audience in a fairy tale world," the source said. 

The source added, “The first step is to get the crew vaccinated, and this will be followed by getting on the sets to kick off the first schedule. It's all work in progress with set designing and other aspects being looked after in isolation. The music settings have also begun, as being a romantic saga, there lies ample of scope for good music.”

With ‘Prem Kahaani’, Karan Johar would be returning to direction after four years post his last movie, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ starring Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai and Anushka Sharma.

“Though a love story, this one is in a completely different space. While ADHM was intense, this one has ample comedy and fits in the definition of rom-coms that Bollywood, especially, the ones Dharma Productions is known for,” the source said.
