There's only a week away until the much-anticipated film Kalank releases in theaters. Starring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt, it is truly the star-studded cast that Bollywood fans cannot wait to see on the big screen. As the film is a period drama set in the 1940s, during the pre-Independence era. Beyond the grand designs of the sets and various song numbers as seen in the trailer, we can also expect to see some gorgeous costume design work to give the full regal feel to the film. The Kalank stars have certainly not shyed away from showing off some gorgeous and dashing looks during their promotions for the film so far. Scroll to see some of the best styles.
Madhuri looked positively gorgeous in this pink and red ensemble. Her kohl-rimmed eyes and miniscule bindi completed the look.
Alia, meanwhile, added a touch of drama to her pale blue anarkali with some bright, chunky jhumkas.
Varun gave us this fantastic Kalank merchandising idea with a denim jacket that had the portrait of his character, Zafar, emblazoned on the back. Definitely expect this jacket on the wishlist of every die-hard Varun fan.
This look of Alia's totally screamed elegance and femininity. Her usual hairstyle of flowing waves paired perfectly with her pale pink anarkali, and the hint of a bright blue bindi tied the entire look together.
On the other hand, Sonakshi brought in edginess and style with her look during the same promotion. Though patterns on patterns can be hard to pull off, Sonakshi rocked the look with enviable poise.
Stepping away from the traditional looks she was normally wearing for the promotions, Alia opted for this businesswear-chic look complete with a bun, minimal makeup and a few stackable silver rings.
But she and Varun brought it back when they showed up in these gorgeous white outfits, looking every bit the picture of royalty and regality. This time, their chemistry was the perfect accessory.
Sonakshi took our breath away when she turned up to the Kalank trailer launch in this dazzling outfit. She particularly played to her strength of traditional Indian beauty in this deep maroon look with flowing hair.
The cherry on the cake of these promo styles though was when Alia, Varun, Sonakshi and Aditya all showed up sporting deep red looks, reminiscent of the bright crimson shades that have been used in the Kalank promotional material.
Sonakshi's sari had little embellishments but totally made up for it with its deep crimon colour and perfect fit on Sonakshi.
Aditya looked like a nawab straight out of the last century in this dashing look.
Varun emulated his character of Zafar with this less regal yet very traditional look, complete with a touch of kajal around the eyes for drama.
Alia on the other hand went more modern with this off-the-shoulder dress, but the traditional-style patterns on the end of the skirt and some large jhumkas turned it into a perfect merger of Eastern and Western style.
While individually the whole cast is a great sight for the eyes, it sure is a treat to see them together.
Kalank is set to release on the 17th of April and is directed by Abhishek Varman and produced by Karan Johar. Other than the film being a period drama set in the pre-Partition era, little is known about the exact plot as of yet, though its emotionally-powered and dramatic trailer has already set the hype train in motion.
