For actress Bhumi Pednekar, working in "Takht", a Karan Johar directorial, is nothing short of a dream as she has grown up watching and loving his movies which she feels are high on real emotions.
The Actress said:
"I think Karan's films are larger than life and yet aspirational at the same time, where emotions are real. You feel Karan's films and the emotions linger on. I'm honoured and privileged that I have the opportunity to be directed by him and I will give it my all for him.

Apart from the magnum opus "Takht", Bhumi will also star in his production, the newly announced horror franchise film titled "Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship" in which she will share screen space with Vicky Kaushal. The 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' actor also revealed how 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' had an immense impact on her while growing up.
"I loved and enjoyed 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'. The film released when I was in school. I was literary 10 and it had such a big impact on me growing up because it honestly defined pop culture at that time. So, I went through that entire phase where I would dress up like Kajol with head bands, sweat bands and some days I would dress up as Rani ma'am too, like in short skirts and try to act like her. I had that neckpiece that said 'cool'. I remember dancing to 'Koi mil gaya' at every birthday party or family get-together. I was borderline obsessed with the movie and made the kids in our building compete as Team Tina and Team Anjali at get-togethers. That was the level of impact the movie had. After seeing this movie, I also went for a summer camp which was very close to the one shown in the movie. Basically, I tried to do everything that Karan showed in 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' and wanted to live it." the actress said
Another movie which touched her was 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'.
"It speaks of a relationship where two friends are confused about their feelings. It was such a beautiful, mature love story that really moved me." The actress said
Her upcoming movie 'Takht' is a period drama which also features RanveerSingh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal. The flick is all set to hit the big screens in 2020.
