Karan Johar has finally announced his next big project. Titled Kalank, the film stars Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha. Madhuri and Sanjay will be seen together after a gap of years in the film.
To make the project truly one-of-a-kind, Kiara Advani has also been reportedly roped in for a dance number. She will perform with Varun Dhawan. A source told a leading publication, “Kiara is doing an item number in Kalank. She will be seen with Varun Dhawan in the song. They have started the shoot of the film with this song.”
The film is reportedly an “epic drama” set in the 1940s. The film is being directed by 2 States director Abhishek Varman. Talking about the film, Karan had told a leading daily, “Kalank has been an emotional journey for me. A germ of an idea that I had nearly 15 years ago; a film that was in pre-production stage helmed by my father. I am now proud to pass it on to the capable and visionary hands of our director, Abhishek. The film is a beautifully structured story by Shibani Bathija, and has an exceptionally fluid narrative and screenplay by Abhishek.”
The film will be jointly produced by Sajid Nadiadwala who said, “April 18, 2014, was when 2 States had released, and now on April 18, 2018, Kalank begins its journey. This multi-starrer has a story that will cross all borders and will be historic in the true sense of the word. I am genuinely happy to be back with the team, as this film is special to all of us.”
The film will release on April 19, 2019.
