On Sunday, Alia Bhatt gave us a glimpse of her evening plans which involved Karan Johar and his upcoming period drama Takht. The Kalank actor shared a boomerang on her Instagram which shows a coffee mug with the word ‘Takht’ printed on it and Karan Johar who sits in front of her. Karan is dressed in a red shirt and a floral blazer. Immersed in Takht prep, it seems like Karan Johar is speaking to someone else in the room.

We wonder who that is?
