Karan Johar’s period drama Kalank was anyway one of most anticipated films of 2019. However, after the makers revealed its character posters, be it of the men of Kalank or its women, we believe that the buzz has tremendously increased. From Varun Dhawan’s fierce look as Zafar to a charming Aditya Roy Kapur as Dev Chaudhry and Sanjay Dutt as the powerful Balraj Chaudhry. Let’s not miss the stunning Alia Bhatt as Roop, an elegant Sonakshi Sinha as Satya and Madhuri Dixit’s enticing glimpse as Bahaar Begum. All the first look posters have only added to the fans’ curiosity and excitement.
Here’s another exciting news update. Earlier, Kalank was slated to release on April 19, 2019. However, now, according to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the makers have decided to bring its release date forward by 2 days and it will now hit the big screens on April 17, 2019. Reportedly, the makers want to take utmost advantage of the long festive weekend. It includes the likes of Mahavir Jayanti, Good Friday and the weekend. So, Kalank will get a good nine-day run before Marvel’s much-awaited Avengers: Endgame hits the big screens.
A source close to the makers told the tabloid, "The idea is to capitalise on Mahavir Jayanti as well as Good Friday, besides Saturday and Sunday. It's an extended weekend with two partial holidays. And going by past records, it's a good time for a big film to release. It's a well-thought-out business decision to advance the opening.” Now, that’s one smart move from the Dharma Productions!
