Earlier, while releasing a still from the film, producer Karan Johar wrote a heartfelt message mentioning how this film was conceived by him and his late father Yash Johar, 15 years ago. Kalank also marks Varun and Alia’s fourth film together after being paired in films like Student Of The Year (2012), Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014) and Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017).

Kalank features Varun as Zafar, a blacksmith while Alia plays the role of a royal woman named Roop. The other actors in the film are Sanjay, who will be playing the role of Balraj Chaudhary, Madhuri as Bahaar Begum, Aditya as Dev Chaudhary and Sonakshi as Satya Chaudhary. The film is set in the 40s during the time of partition.

The film which was earlier supposed to release on April 19 will reportedly release on April 17. The shift in the release date is a business decision taken by producer Karan Johar considering anticipated Hollywood film Avengers: End Game is hitting the screens in India on April 26. Kalank will have a nine-day free run at the Box Office before the big superhero film takes over the screens.
