Karan Johar’s much-anticipated films have been in news for more than one reasons. Be it Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt reunion or the title of the film or the intriguing storyline, everything about KJo’s forthcoming film has kept the audience hooked.
And after months of speculation, Karan Johar made an official announcement about his much-anticipated film. Titled Kalank, the drama stars Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt.
Conceptualised by Karan and his late dad Yash Johar almost 15 years ago, Kalank is an epic drama set in the period of 1940s.
Talking about the film, KJo told a leading daily, “Kalank has been an emotional journey for me. It is a gem of an idea that I had nearly 15 years ago and a film that was in a pre-production stage helmed by my father. I am now proud to pass it onto the extremely capable and visionary hands of director Abhishek Varman. Kalank has a beautifully structured story by Shibani Bathija and an exceptionally fluid narrative and screenplay by Abhishek.”
Kalank will see Madhuri and Sanjay reunite on the big screen after 25 years. Not only this, Kalank also marks the fourth collaboration between Varun and Alia.
Directed by Abhishek Varman, Kalank is set to hit the screens on April 19, 2019.
