"Honestly, I don’t know what Takht is about. Karan called me one day and said, 'I am making this film and you have to be a part of it. So, I said, 'Okay, I am not even listening to the script; you know I’ve to be a part of it.' It’s only recently when we were in Bulgaria that I said, ‘accha bata do kya kar rahi hoon main film mein.' (tell me what I will be doing in the film) But I’d do this only with Karan because he is somebody whom I will blindly work with," the actress told Hindustan Times, reports Times Now.

Karan in an appearance on Neha Dhupia's podcast had said Takht was a part of history he was obsessed with for its "visual texture, its controversial content, the political betrayal, the love, the lust, the decadence, the debauchery, the madness and the violence."

Takht will go on the floor in September 2019. Alia's other projects include Brahmastra, Kalank, Sadak 2 and Gully Boy.
