Anil Kapoor’s character of Shah Jahan in period drama ‘Takht’ needs him to put on some ounces and inches around the waistline. Being one of the fittest stars in the Bollywood industry since his heyday, Anil will be tweaking his diet from next year to finally gain weight to play the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. Karan Johar will take up the directorial reins for this war drama which features an ensemble cast of Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Janhvi Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal. Anil Kapoor is expected to make a physical change early next year as the team begins shooting in 2019. Buzz suggests that ‘Takht’ is based on a war between Shah Jahan’s two sons Dara Shikoh and Aurangzeb. Kareena Kapoor Khan will reportedly essay the role of Dara Shikoh and Aurangzeb’s sister and the princess of the Mughal Empire, Jahanara Begum. ‘Takht’ is scheduled to release in 2020.
