The look of the three actors was lauded and their fans expressed excitement for the period drama on social media.
Kalank is directed by 2 States fame Abhishek Varman. Talking about working on the project, Alia recently said at an event, “Kalank is an unbelievable journey. It is an honour to be a part of such a great cast. The film’s director Abhishek Varman is a very dear friend, and we all have put in a lot of hard work for this one.”
While announcing the film, Karan Johar revealed that Kalank is his dream project. It was conceptualised by his late father Yash Johar fifteen years ago.
Talking about it, Karan had said, “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.”
