Karan said, “When I thought of this film, I thought Ranveer Singh has to be in this film. That was my decision. I remember the narration. There would be a huge part in my heart which would’ve been crushed if for some reason you would’ve declined the offer because I had you in mind for Takht always. You were the first person who heard it. Nobody in my family knew this film was ready.”
