Ever since Abhishek Varman’s ambitious period drama Kalank was announced, fans have been waiting with bated breath for a glimpse of the film, which features Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur in key roles.

Producer Karan Johar took to social media to share the first look from Kalank. He wrote, “A film that was born in my heart and mind 15 years ago….a film I passionately believe in…the last film my father worked on before he left us….it was his dream to see this film come through….I couldn’t fulfil his dream then….my spirit was broken….but today his wish has found a relationship with celluloid….the story of turbulent relationships and eternal love has found a voice….the film has been woven, nurtured and visualised by ABHISHEK VARMAN….and the film Is KALANK! Set in the 40’s but it’s heart lives on…..TOMORROW the journey begins…..am excited …anxious and emotional about this one…I do hope you join us on our path to undying love..”

Earlier yesterday, the cast seemed to engage in a fun interaction on Twitter. Varun wrote on Twitter, “Breaking. Alia to handle marketing!”

Alia responded, “Hahaha, I’ve learnt from the best!”

Karan Johar wrote a surprised tweet, “Sorry??? How come I don’t about this!!!?? We have a team which is all set with a plan!!!!”

Kalank is Varun and Alia’s fourth collaboration after Student Of The Year, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Fans are also excited to watch Sanjay and Madhuri together on screen after over two decades.

In a tweet, Varun called Kalank his “biggest film till date” and said that he was “crazy excited” to be a part of it. Touted to be a drama set against the Partition and independence struggle in the 1940s, the film was originally conceptualised a decade and a half ago.

Karan Johar’s father, the late Yash Johar, was supposed to direct Kalank. Pre-production had begun, but it got shelved. Now, Karan has passed the baton on to filmmaker Abhishek Varman.

“I am now proud to pass it on to 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 Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director said in a statement.

Kalank is scheduled to open in theatres on April 19.
