Ace Filmmaker Karan Johar‘s ambitious project ‘Kalank’ which’ll see Madhuri Dixit Nene and Sanjay Dutt together on screen has been in the news since quite a long time. The movie also stars Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur. The makers were taking extra measures to keep the details of the cast under wraps, but it looks like they failed to keep it a secret.
According to Catch News, Madhuri Dixit, Varun Dhawan and Sonakshi Sinha will be playing important roles in the film. Varun will be seen playing a Muslim blacksmith whose shop will be in the famous Lahore market called Heera Mandi which was later turned into a red light area by the British.
Madhuri Dixit will be playing prostitutes’ leader while Sonakshi Sinha will be playing the role of a banjaran (migrant). Aditya Roy Kapur will play the role of an artisan who teams up with Varun Dhawan to start a rebellion against the British government.
Kalank tells the story of that time when the blacksmiths and prostitutes joined hands and defeated the British after putting up a brave fight. The first 15 minutes of the film will reportedly have an intense action sequence, and Varun Dhawan has already shot the whole sequence in a single take.
Alia Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt’s roles in the film are yet to be known. If the reports are anything to go by, it will be interesting to see the different kind of looks the lead actors would don in the film to look authentic for their respective parts.
The movie is slated for release on April 19, 2019.
