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.
Check out these pictures from the teaser to see what we mean:
See what we mean? Even the music sounds hauntingly familiar. Madhuri Dixit looks like Chadramukhi and we’re transported back to the days of Devdas. However, a single google search shows that production designer Amrita Mahal worked on the sets and that they cost KJo a small fortune – reportedly 15 crore rupees.
