Beginning the process of sharing stills and first looks from the movie, Karan, on Wednesday had posted a picture on Instagram with a heartfelt caption along with it, citing this movie’s emotional attatchment to the filmmaker. He wrote:

“A film that was born in my heart and mind 15 years ago….a film I passionately believe in…the last film my father worked on before he left us….it was his dream to see this film come through….I couldn’t fulfil his dream then….my spirit was broken….but today his wish has found a relationship with celluloid….the story of turbulent relationships and eternal love has found a voice….the film has been woven,nurtured and visualised by ABHISHEK VARMAN….and the film Is KALANK! Set in the 40’s but it’s heart lives on…..TOMORROW the journey begins…..am excited …anxious and emotional about this one…I do hope you join us on our path to undying love…..#KALANK”

The movie is directed by Abhishek Varman and is a period drama set in the 1940s, during the partition of India. Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt will be paired to share the screen space after almost 25 years putting aside their controversial personal past. Madhuri reportedly will play a courtesan. Varun accidentally made a slip during a media interaction and it hinted that Varun and Aditya might play brothers but that doesn’t seem to hold true now. All in all, we are eagerly waiting to see this great ensemble on screen and the Women of Kalank very soon.

The movie is slated to smash the theatres on April 19, 2019.
