‘Kalank’: Release date of Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starrer preponed?
Abhishek Varman made his directorial debut with ‘Two States’ that released in 2014. Five years later, the director is here again to treat the audience with epic romance-drama ‘Kalank’. The multi-starrer film is set in the 1940s and showcases the story of turbulent relationships and eternal love.
It was only recently that the makers of the film unveiled the first look of all its leading characters – Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha. The film was scheduled to hit the silver screens on April 19, but if the latest buzz is anything to go by, the period drama will arrive a little early. Yes, you read that right.
As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, the makers of ‘Kalank’ will be releasing their film on April 17. A source close to the development told the tabloid, “The idea is to capitalise on Mahavir Jayanti as well as Good Friday, besides Saturday and Sunday. It’s an extended weekend with two partial holidays. And going by past records, it’s a good time for a big film to release.”
However, there has been no official announcement regarding the same yet.
