Vicky Kaushal Opened Up On Takht And The Immortal Ashwatthama Being Shelved

Sharing the Koffee with Karan couch with Siddharth Malhotra, Vicky Kaushal spoke about his movies Takht and The Immortal Ashwatthama that got shelved

Vicky Kaushal has two prominent projects titled Takht and The Immortal Ashwatthama in his kitty. During his appearance on the popular celebrity talk show Koffee with Karan 7, he spoke about these films being shelved. The actor shared the couch with Sidharth Malhotra in the Punjabi Munde edition episode. While talking about life with the host Karan Johar, Vicky also shared an update on his two major upcoming films. 

Takht is touted to be a historical film tracing the relationship between Mughal emperor Aurangzeb and his brother Dara Shikoh. Vicky Kaushal is said to play Aurangzeb in the ensemble cast film featuring Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, and Bhumi Pednekar. The film will be directed by Karan Johar who returned to the director’s chair to helm Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.

On the other hand, The Immortal Ashwatthama is a trilogy set in modern times. The project will be helmed by Aditya Dhar and stars Sara Ali Khan alongside Vicky Kaushal. Ever Since both the big projects were announced not many updates have been received. Upcoming movies of Vicky Kaushal, Takht, and The Immortal Ashwatthama got shelved reportedly. 

Talking about delays in his movies, Vicky told KJo: “Both of them were because of covid reasons. It actually wasn’t so difficult because it had such genuine and logistical reasons. It was nothing like being emotionally involved that this is not working. Both the projects were in a great space but it was just a different time for both the projects to go on floors. I remember when it was for ‘Ashwatthama’, I was shooting for ‘Govinda Naam Mera’ with Shashank and I got a call that the were pulling the plug on the film for now. I actually had my trainer with me and I told him, ‘Let’s hit the gym and I told him to give me the most difficult workout’. That was the film which I had given two years to, in terms of prep and we were really close to start shooting.”

Talking about how he deals with such setbacks in life, the Sardar Udham actor said, “It just stays with me for one day because after a few hours I see the logic behind it and start seeing sense in it. So I stop feeling emotional about it. I always miss it, crave for it but it never sends me in a space where I feel gloomy about it. And also in this short journey, there have been times when I have not landed a role, almost landed a role, for it to eventually turn out to be the best thing. So I have this faith so strongly in me that everything happens for the best, that cannot be shaken ever. But since you have called this a manifestation couch, I would just say that Takht and Ashwatthama.”
