We have seen him as a sweet lover boy in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, a wounded husband in Badlapur and as a professional dancer in ABCD 2; now, it's time to witness Varun Dhawan as fierce Zafar in Karan Johar's Kalank. This film has been titillating us for like forever, as the makers managed to keep everything hidden until the last minute. Finally, the first poster of Kalank is out and we must say, it is worth the wait. Making the optimal use of social media, the team of Kalank directed by Abhishek Varman is releasing stills and images of the film one-by-one and today, KJo treated us to the first poster of the film featuring only Varun Dhawan.
"He flirts with life and danger", writes Karan Johar as he puts up the poster on Instagram. With an intense look on his face, rage in his eyes and lines of anger on his forehead; Varun seems to be fighting the evil. Maybe, even fighting for love. That's something that we derive from Alia Bhatt's post on Twitter. While sharing Varun's poster, she wrote, "Fearless in love. Fearless for love. Super happy to present Zafar!

Presenting @varundvn as Zafar! He flirts with life and danger! #MenOfKalank #Kalank @varundvn @duttsanjay @adityaroykapur @aliaabhatt @aslisona @madhuridixitnene @abhivarman #SajidNadiadwala @apoorva1972 @foxstarhindi @dharmamovies @nadiadwalagrandson
Worth noticing is how this poster is quite in contrast to the still that Karan had shared last evening. The picture had a traditionally dressed man rowing a boat in a lotus strewn river with a woman seated ahead of him. It was serene, unlike Varun's menacing poster. This tells us that, maybe, we are going to see different aspects and different journeys of the star cast whilst their lives align to achieve something good.

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.....#KALANK
Kalank, that also stars Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha, will hit the screens in April 2019. The story is based in the 40s so it is going to be time travel of sorts for the audience. We are now looking forward to the other character posters.
