Karan Johar has managed a casting coup of sorts for his ambitious project, Takht. Ask the maverick filmmaker what appealed to him about the subject and he says, I'm obsessed with the Mughal era. There's one segment in the entire dynasty that captured my attention and Takht is based on that. Karan is happy with the eclectic line-up of actors for the period venture. It has a beautiful mix of stars and actors.
