Bhumi Pednekar On Takht: I’m Excited About This Magnum Opus; It’s A Big One For Me!

Actress Bhumi Pednekar says Karan Johar’s newly announced magnum opus Takht is a big project in her acting career.

Bhumi was at an event where she was appointed brand ambassador of Raisin Global, a contemporary fusion wear brand for women, here on Tuesday, when she spoke about Takht.

“I am very excited about this magnum opus as it’s a big one for me. It has a beautiful star cast. In fact, everybody who is in the film are people that I admire as actors.

'Takht' is a big one for me, says Bhumi

“It’s a great honour for me to be working with such great actors and to be directed by a veteran. I am a very big Karan Johar fan ever since I was a child. So honestly, it’s very special feeling and it’s still sinking in. I am still dealing with it and I am just so nervous about the film.”

Takht also features Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and Janhvi Kapoor.

Before making it as an actress, Bhumi worked as a casting executive for Yash Raj films.

Asked whether her stint as casting executive has helped in her acting, she said: “Definitely. It benefited me a lot in my acting because I feel my experience working as casting executive was equivalent to going to any film school.

“I worked with different directors where I used to conduct auditions of different actors, so I got fair amount of idea about what is required and what is not required to be an actor. I was enacting film scenes for 3 years of my life working as casting executive.”

Takht will be a story of a family, ambition, greed, betrayal, love and succession. It is being produced by Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta, for release in 2020.

Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi Actress Kangana Ranaut: I’m Nowhere Close To Rani Laxmibai’s Greatness!

Actress Kangana Ranaut is honoured to tell the story of Rani Laxmibai through her forthcoming period drama Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, and calls it an iconic role.

The makers Zee Studios and producer Kamal Jain released the first look of the film today.

The project, directed by Krish, promises to tell a story of courage, strength, and determination, and celebrates the extraordinary story of the queen who laid down her life at the age of 30.

I have tried my best to essay role of Rani Laxmibai: Kangana

“It’s an iconic role. I trained a lot in sword fights and horse riding. In fact after riding the horse for two days straight I got a fever.

“I can only imagine the strength and nerves of steel that Laxmibai had… I am nowhere close to her greatness. I have only tried my best to portray her tales of bravery,” Kangana said in a statement.

The makers chose Independence Day to launch the first official poster, given the significance of Rani Laxmibai in India’s freedom struggle.

Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios, said: “The film is mounted on a massive scale to justify the extraordinary story of Rani of Jhansi — her courage, her strength, and her great love for the country.

“Who better than Kangana Ranaut to portray her on the big screen. We couldn’t have been happier with the way the campaign is coming together.”

To this, Jain added: “As we celebrate our Independence Day today, we owe it to our brave freedom fighters.

“Many heroes gallantly fought for our freedom, one such great Indian hero is our own Manikarnika, our Rani of Jhansi, Laxmibai, who is the symbol of heroism in India.”

Manikarnika-The Queen of Jhansi is slated to release on January 25, 2019.
