Helmed by Abhishek Varman, ‘Kalank’ is a period drama and stars Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, and Aditya Roy Kapur.


This will be Alia and Varun's fourth collaboration after working together in blockbusters like 'Student of the Year', 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania' and 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania'. It also brings back the magical pair of Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt after 25 years.

'Kalank' marks the first collaboration of Fox Star Studios, Dharma Productions and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment.

Producer Karan Johar had shared the first looks of the characters along with glimpses into the world of 'Kalank'. Karan recently shared that how much the film, that was conceptualised 15 years ago and one on which even his late father Yash Johar worked on, meant to him.

Twitterati loves 'Kalank' teaser:

The Internet has already gone in a tizzy over how stunningly mounted 'Kalank' is. Fangirling over Alia and Varun's chemistry too has begun. There is also anticipation that this might be a well-fleshed out role for Sonakshi after her role as Pakhi in 'Lootera'.
