Dharma Productions’ next film Kalank has created an immense buzz on social media. The film’s teaser released recently to a great response. The stunning starcast of the film – Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur looked fascinating in the teaser. And now, the makers have dropped another tease from the film. A new poster of Kalank reveals Varun in his larger-than-life avatar.
The actor is playing the character of Zafar, a blacksmith in the film. The poster shows him fighting a bull in the traditional thrilling contest. Dressed in a white dhoti, a scarf on his waist with fiery expressions on his face, Varun looks all rugged on the poster. Check out the poster here:
The actor’s character in the film is in love with Roop, Alia‘s character. However, the complexities of religion and the troublesome time of the India-Pakistan partition bring difficulties in their relationship. The teaser was especially appreciated for showcasing the chemistry between Varun and Alia in a quite subtle way. The video also shows Varun flaunting his pumped-up muscles and six-pack-abs in the bullfighting scene. In another scene, he is seen walking towards Alia as a giant effigy of Ravana continues to burn in the background.

Kalank is a big period drama, directed by Abhishek Varman. The film is produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala. It’s slated to hit the screens on April 17. Kalank also marks Varun and Alia’s fourth on-screen outing together. They have earlier performed together in Dharma’s three successful films – Student Of The Year, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Kalank also brings back the iconic pairing of Sanjay and Madhuri after a hiatus of 22 years. The film is considered quite close to KJo’s heart as it’s the last film that was conceived by him with his father Yash Johar.
