Karan Johar’s production venture Kalank’s teaser was launched on Tuesday in Mumbai by the producer and the main cast of the period drama. At the event, Madhuri Dixit spoke about reuniting with Sanjay Dutt, taking up the role of Bahaar Begum post Sridevi’s untimely death and being a part of the costume drama.

Madhuri and Sanjay have previously starred together in movies such as Khalnayak and Saajan. When asked about her big reunion with Sanjay in Kalank, the dancing diva said, “We are working together almost after 20 years. It was great working with Anil Kapoor also. So it is always great to work with old colleagues.”

Speaking about the same, the actor said, “I was very sad with her death, I had a very heavy heart when I was approached to do this. To step in her role was difficult as I knew that she was going to do it and I would miss her. But then as an actor, I have to go past that. I will always miss her terribly.”
