Bollywood has an amazing line up in store but owing to the coronavirus outbreak the shooting schedules of most of these projects have been affected. Karan Johar’s period drama, Takht too was put on the burner for the moment owing to COVID 19. Now, as per sources, we hear Fox Star India had pulled out of its collaboration with KJohar for the lavish costume drama.
One of Bollywood’s most prestigious film production companies Fox Star India has been facing financial setbacks in 2020. Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak and Ashwini Iyer Tiwari’s Panga both underperformed at the box office and didn’t give the expected results. And now the Coronavirus has played havoc with the schedules and budget.
Sources in the know say this could be the beginning of the end of Karan Johar’s collaboration with Fox Star. Johar and Fox Star have collaborated on several successful and not-so-successful projects during the past 10 years. But now with Fox Star’s CEO Vijay Singh putting in his papers, the studio is re-examining its long-standing association with Karan Johar and Dharma Productions.
The first casualty of this re-assessment is Takht which was meant to be the most expensive Dharma-Fox collaboration of all times. But then, God and Coronavirus had other plans.
