As the best of two different generations come together, Alia Bhatt is joined by Madhuri Dixit when they started shooting for ‘Kalank’. Directed by Abhishek Varman and Produced by Karan Johar, Kalank is an upcoming film starring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt in the lead roles. It is a film set in history perhaps pre-independence India in a small town. Alia would be working with Madhuri for the first time and both of them are being touted as absolute bests of their individual generations.
Alia was just about born when Madhuri became a star in the films as she leaded the pack of female actress in the 90’s. Initially this role in Kalank was conceived for Sridevi and she was about to start the shoot but due to her sudden demise that dream stayed unfulfilled. In an act of graciousness, Madhuri signed the film when Karan offered it to her and shooting has already begun with Varun. Varun jumped right into this one after October and made some serious changes in his physique by getting ripped for the character against his very normal boy next door look.
It’s a massive star cast and the film will release in April 2019. Character details are kept in hidden due to utmost secrecy about the plot as majorly all the actors have started the shoot. Sanjay has not shown up to the sets yet as he is shooting for some other film outside of this country. He could not even make it to the launch event of his own biopic as Ranbir Kapoor has portrayed him in many facets. Varman has made ‘2 States’ before which was a blockbuster success and this will be his second outing though the project is far more bigger. This film was actually conceived way back in 2004 but getting into production only after 14 years.
