Didn’t expect to do a Karan Johar film so early in career: Bhumi

[dropcap]B[/dropcap]agging a Karan Johar directorial so early in her career was a dream come true for Bhumi Pednekar who believes it’s a big opportunity to be a part of his next Takht.

Directed by Johar, Takht also stars Kareena Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor.

“It was a dream come true. I didn’t expect to bag a Karan Johar film so soon in my career. I always hoped I would work with him, he’s a prolific filmmaker. He has really changed the game. He has a great vision. I was surprised when it happened… I immediately told my parents,” Bhumi told media persons.

Takht is set in Mughal era and chronicles the story of two warring brothers. While Bhumi is tight-lipped about her role, the Dum Laga Ke Haisha star says she’s happy that the films she’s doing align with her sensibilities.

“When I started out, I didn’t realise I would get a chance to have an effect on so many people. I’ve been lucky to get work I believe in and which completely goes with my sensibilities, ideas and beliefs,” she says.
