Actor Kareena Kapoor will undergo dialect training for her historical period drama Takht, which is based in the Mughal era and chronicles the story of two warring brothers.
The 38-year-old actor says her character in the Karan Johar-directed film is “socially relevant.”
“It’s a different film because I’ve not really done a period film like this. There will be a certain amount of dialect preparation, look tests that will happen. I’m also working with Karan after a very long time so I’m very excited,” Kareena told PTI.
The actor said Karan has evolved as a director and even she has “completely changed as an artiste” since they last worked together in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001).
“Hopefully it’ll be a part which will be remembered because it’s socially relevant. It’s a strong character. The best part is it’ll be completely different than what I did in ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ as Poo,” she added. The historical drama also features Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor, and Anil Kapoor. The film will reportedly go on floors later this year.

Arjun Kapoor turns entrepreneur with food delivery app
Actor has invested in an app that aims to empower women
Actor Arjun Kapoor has turned co-investor for a home food delivery company which aims to empower women.
“My aim at investing in Foodcloud.in is to contribute towards a larger societal purpose — of empowering the homemakers to contribute towards their family income,” Kapoor said in a statement.
Led by CEO Vedant Kanoi and co-founder Sanjhi Rajgarhia, the food delivery platform runs on the premise of home cooks delivering hygienic and home-cooked food to customers from their kitchens.
“It not only boosts household income leading to a better lifestyle but also drives gender parity for the woman at home or in her neighbourhood. To me, that’s a tiny step towards parity, towards empowerment in society at large,” added the ‘Ki & Ka’ actor.
The 33-year-old star said that by signing on with the Foodcloud.in platform, women can convert their skill set into an economic asset.
For Kanoi, having a “socially conscious youth icon” like Kapoor’s support is a dream come true.
