'Kalank’ is one of the most anticipated films of 2019. It is set in the backdrop of 1940s and stars the big names from the industry. The movie is produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. The film also features Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur and is slated to hit the screens on April 19, 2019. Actresses Kriti Sanon and Kiara Advani will also be seen in the film in special appearances. 

As per reports, Sonakshi, who plays a poet in the film, will be paired opposite Aditya Roy Kapur while Sanjay Dutt will be seen as Alia's father.

It is to be noted that the 'Kalank' was conceptualized by KJo and his father Yash Johar around 15 years ago. Late veteran actress Sridevi was initially signed for the character, which has been essayed by Madhuri.
