He said that this is the film that gets him nervous. He also added that he has never been nervous in his other experiences because they have always been about the people that he knew. For Takht, Karan Johar had to get into the heads of Shah Jhan, Dara Shukoh and Aurangzeb which is why he had to do a lot of reading, researching, soul searching to understand their minds and their ambitions, failings, highs and lows. Karan Johar is reportedly working on the final edit of the script.
