Dream project of Karan Johar called Kalank has started at last which has been planned by Karan’s father Yash Johar almost 15 years back. The movie is expected to take us to the era of 1940s. Cast for the movie is quite illustrious with Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur.
On the day of beginning shoot, Karan Johar has been accompanied by Sajid Nadiadwala and David Dhawan to the floor. Some pictures have been posted by Alia with them and captioned the image as “The men in RED and BLACK Day 1 of #Kalank calls for a visit to set from the 3 most important people! What a way to begin the film!! @karanjohar @NGEMovies#DavidDhawan @Varun_dvn”
Some pictures have been shared by October actor Varun Dhawan as well. Image of Sajid and Karan comes with the post “It begins #kalank.”
Pictures of Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur have been uploaded too.
Regarding the movie, Karan has told “Kalank has been an emotional journey for me. A germ of an idea that I had nearly 15 years ago; a film that was in pre-production stage helmed by my father. I am now proud to pass it on to the capable and visionary hands of our director, Abhishek. The film is a beautifully structured story by Shibani Bathija, and has an exceptionally fluid narrative and screenplay by Abhishek.”
One of the sources close to the production house has said, “When Yash Johar was toying with the idea of making this epic drama, he had done a lot of research. He had even visited Lahore to understand how the situation could have been in the ‘40s, but he couldn’t start the project.”
