Both the actors shared their excitement about being part of Takht, which is a period drama. Vicky said that being a part of Takht was like a "dream come true" and he is "very grateful" to Karan Johar for the project, news agency IANS reported. Vicky Kaushal avoided divulging details about the film and said: "I cannot talk too much about Takht apart from the fact that I am getting an opportunity to be directed by Karan sir, and work with a fabulous set of actors. It's any actor's dream come true, so I am very grateful." Takht will be Vicky's second collaboration with Karan Johar.

Vicky Kaushal, who started his career with 2012 film Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, has come a long way to becoming a prominent face in Bollywood.

With every film, my confidence gets boosted, I feel motivated. It has been a good journey. My family is happy, I am happy," IANS quoted the actor as saying.
