The first song from the Movie, Ghar More Pardesiya, featured Alia Bhatt and Madhuri Dixit. The 3.15 minute-long video showed Ramleela in advance, wherein Alia and Varun can be seen walking through the audience smitten from the essence of their environment. Alia showed off some notable classical dancing steps in the tune and garnered a great deal of praise for this. The film’s teaser was unveiled earlier this month.
With a star-studded cast of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Sanjay Dutt, this period drama is set in the 1940s India. According to Karan, who has bankrolled the job, the movie was initially conceptualized about 15 years back by his father, overdue Yash Johar.
Abhishek Varman has helmed the time drama that’s all set to hit the big screens on April 17 this year.
By what we can figure out, Varun’s character in Kalank is the outsider into the royal lifestyle of Alia Bhatt’s character. It was succeeded in the teaser that there might be a romance between Varun and Alia’s characters, but we see her getting married to Aditya Roy Kapur’s personality. Madhuri Dixit’s Bahar Begum makes a surprise appearance towards the end of this song movie.
Karan Johar had earlier mentioned, “Kalank was an emotional journey for me. It is a gem of an idea I had nearly 15 years back and a movie that was at the pre-production stage helmed by my father. I am now proud to pass it on the extremely capable and visionary hands of manager Abhishek Varman. Kalank has a superbly structured story by Shibani Bathija and an exceptionally fluid story and screenplay by Abhishek.”
Kalank stars Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt in key roles. The film is co-produced by Dharma Productions, Nadiadwala Grandson and Fox Star Studios.
