Vicky told Bollywood Hungama, "This is definitely off my bucket list since I have wanted to do a period drama – it’s a great ensemble.”

Apart from Vicky, the historical epic will feature Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal,Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar in key roles. Takht is slated for a 2021 release.
