Director Abhishek Varman’s multi-starrer Kalank released this Wednesday. The period drama stars Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles. Produced by Karan Johar, the film received mixed reviews from the audiences as well as the critics.
On its first day, Kalank made a collection of Rs 21.60 crores. This Varun-Alia starrer was also the biggest opener of 2019. Coming to its day 2 box office collection, it has seen a major drop in its collection. As reported by Box Office India, there is a drop of 50% approx and the collection is around 10-10.50 crores approx. This makes the collection of the film Rs 31 crores approx.
However, there is a whole weekend for the film to bounce back to better numbers. As the film released on Wednesday, the next day Thursday was a working day. It would be interesting to see how much the film collects on its third day and the entire weekend.
Kalank is a dream project of Karan Johar’s father Yash Johar. After more than 20 years, the audiences got to see the 90s hit on-screen pair Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt on the 70 mm screen together.
Coming to its reviews, people are praising the performances delivered by the star cast. However, many found the story slow, although the music of the film is top notch.
