Kalank teaser launch: Sanjay Dutt thinks he's finally over that one Kalank!
The much-awaited teaser of Kalank was revealed on Tuesday. With magnificent visuals and hints of a powerful storyline, the teaser became an immediate win on the internet. With Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Sonakshi Sinha among others, Kalank also boasts of a massive multi-starrer setup. And apart from that, the big screen appearance of Sanjay Dutt, as well as his reunion with Madhuri Dixit, is exciting everyone. Ever since he came out of prison, Sanjay indeed causes a lot of madness every time he is out in the open.
At the teaser launch ceremony, producer Karan Johar took it upon himself to quiz his actors about their feelings, experiences and more. During one such flow of conversation, everyone had to talk about one 'Kalank' (shame) they had. Sanjay, when asked, said 'Jail Gaya Hoon, Woh Kalank Abhi Mit Gaya Lagta Hai' (I think I can stop being ashamed of going to jail now). Needless to say, that caused thunderous applause with the audience cheering 'Baba, Baba'.

After 1993 Mumbai blasts, Dutt was accused of illegitimate possession of arms and was arrested under the provisions of Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention)Act or TADA Act. After an arrest, a bail, a cancellation of bail and a re-arrest, in 2007, the Supreme Court sentenced him to six years of rigorous imprisonment. In February 2016, he was released after finishing his sentence. In between, he was out on bail a number of times and had also filed an appeal against the sentence.
Ever since he returned home, Dutt has maintained a low profile. From the social media updates, it looked like he was most interested to spend quality time with Maanayata and their two children. His comeback film, Omung Kumar's Bhoomi, failed miserably and his next film Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster was a dud as well. Professionally, he quite seems to pin his hope on Kalank!
Meanwhile, his biopic Sanju, starring Ranbir Kapoor, also came out. It was a thorough narration of Dutt's life, including both his personal and professional fronts. Many loved the film while some called it a 'whitewash' and an effort to rectify his public image which might have gone for a toss since he was sent behind the bars.
Kalank, directed by Abhishek Varman, will release on 19th April 2019.
