Filmmaker Karan Johar who can bring the who’s who of the industry together on the silver screen has once again done it. He has brought together the ensemble cast of Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha for his next drama Kalank and the film will release on 19 April, next year.
The epic drama is set in the 1940s and also features Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt. It is expected to go on floors at the end of the month. Karan Johar and his father Yash Johar had first thought about making the film 15 years ago.
Talking about it, Karan said in a statement, “Kalank has been an emotional journey for me. It is a gem of an idea that I had nearly 15 years ago and a film that was in a pre-production stage helmed by my father. I am now proud to pass it onto the extremely capable and visionary hands of director Abhishek Varman. Kalank has a beautifully structured story by Shibani Bathija and an exceptionally fluid narrative and screenplay by Abhishek.”
The film marks the collaboration of Fox Star Studios, Dharma Productions and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment.
“This multi-starrer with a story will cross all borders, under the capable direction of Abhishek Varman. It is historic in the true sense of the word… I am genuinely happy to be back with the team Fox Star and Karan Johar… This film is special to all of us!!” Sajid Nadiadwala said.
Vijay Singh of Fox Star Studios said, “We at Fox Star Studios are proud to be presenting Kalank, a movie with the stellar and power-packed cast of today’s era. With Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala coming together it will be a path breaker and great team to work.
