The first period drama of the year is here, folks. Starring such film personalities like Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit Nene, Kalank is set in pre-partition India and promises to be a good watch.

The film posters were revealed on International Women’s Day along with the names of the characters – Alia will play Roop, Varun will be seen as Zafar, Aditya as Dev, Sonakshi will be called Satya, Sanjay as Balraj and Madhuri as Bahaar Begum.

The teaser is predictably high on drama and looks like a Sanjay Leela Bhansali production because it is so damn aesthetic. In fact, if you didn’t know who was producing the film, you’d think it was imagined into being by SLB. 

Watch the teaser below:

 

On revealing the posters, an emotional Karan Johar (who is producing the movie) stated that the film was a dream of his father’s and that it is a proud moment for him to back a film such as this.
