We just saw ‘Kalank’’s title track and we are definitely looking forward to the film even more. Despite the fact that the marketing strategy for Kalank has been to build the hype for the film for over a month or so, looking at how gorgeous Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Sonaksha Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapoor look in this upcoming film, it surely looks like it’s going to be worth the wait. The track was delayed by a day, too.
From what the teasers and the songs say, Kalank is an intense love story that looks at star-cross’d lovers. Balraj Chaudhary and Bahaar Begum (Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit) appear to be at loggerheads. Roop and Zafar (Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan) love each other but end up being with other people, especially Roop who is apparently married to Dev Chaudhary (Aditya Roy Kapoor). However Dev Chaudhary is in love with Satya Chaudhary (Sonakshi Sinha).
Kalank will be released on April 18th and it is directed by Abhishek Varman. Kalank was a story that Yash Johar had imagined 15 years ago reportedly keeping Sridevi and Shah Rukh Khan in mind. Film critic Anupama Chopra had this to say, "Years ago, @karanjohar told me the story of #Kalank It sounded spectacular & I looked forward to @iamsrk with khol-rimmed eyes. I don’t know how much it has changed but this looks special & @Varun_dvn seems to have filled those very large shoes well!”
