It is not everyday that one comes across a film announcement that spells EXCITING in every possible way.

One-film old Abhishek Varman, who walked away with accolades and a super-hit 2 States (2014) that starred Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor, has managed to pull off a casting coup for his Kalank. What’s more, the epic drama set in the 1940s is being backed by three powerhouse producers. One is Fox Star Studios, the company that recently presented Baaghi 2. And the two producers on board this new announcement are Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Sajid Nadiadwala’s Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment (NGE).

The film, which rolls in Mumbai today, is slated to release on Good Friday, April 19, 2019, one of the coveted weekends for Bollywood’s big-ticket releases.

The cast includes the timeless beauty, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, along with youngsters, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur and above all, it has the towering Sanjay Dutt.

Karan says, “We are extremely excited about Kalank, an epic drama with a solid beating heart! The coming together of this formidable and fantastic cast makes this big-event film exceptionally exciting. Abhishek’s exemplary vision and our prolific partners —Fox Star and Sajid — make this movie even more special.”

Sajid adds, “On April 18, 2014, 2 States was released. On April 18, 2018, Kalank begins its journey. This multi-starrer has a story that will cross all borders, under the capable direction of Abhishek. It will be historic in the true sense of the word and I’m genuinely happy to be back with team Fox Star and Karan. This film is special to all of us!”

Vijay Singh, CEO Fox Star Studios summed up, “Our creative and strategic partnership with Dharma Productions and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, the powerhouses of the industry, has been successful and rewarding. Our association with Dharma gave us an excellent opportunity to be associated with Rs 100-crore hits like Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, and with NGE, we presented back-to-back blockbusters — Judwaa 2 and Baaghi 2. We at Fox Star Studios are proud to be presenting Kalank, a movie with a stellar and power-packed cast of today’s era. With Karan and Sajid coming together, it will be a pathbreaker and a great team to work with.”

Produced by Karan Johar, Sajid Nadiadwala, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta, Kalank, which is written and directed by Abhishek Varman, releases on April 19, 2019.
