Here’s what Madhuri Dixit will be playing in period-drama ‘Kalank’
After adapting Chetan Bhagat’s popular novel ‘2 States‘ for the silver screen, director Abhishek Varman has managed a casting coup of sorts for his second directorial ‘Kalank’. His second film has an ensemble cast of Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Sanjay Dutt.
The best part of this cast is that the Dhak Dhak girl Madhuri Dixit will be reuniting with Sanjay Dutt after 25 years. Apart from this, there’s one more good news for Madhuri fans, the actress will be playing the role of a courtesan in the film. A source close to the development told Pinkvilla, “Madhuri Dixit will be playing a courtesan in the movie which is a period drama. She is a trained Kathak dancer in the movie, who teaches others the dance form. Given her knowledge and mastery on dance, especially Kathak, this one is easy for her. Despite that, she is putting in 4-5 hours for the rehearsals. Currently, due to the promotions of ‘Bucket List’, she is slightly caught up. But once that gets done, she will be leaving no stone unturned for the movie.” (Also read: WATCH: Madhuri Dixit- Renuka Shahane recreate the famous song ‘Lo Chali Main’ from ‘Hum Aapke Hai Koun’)
Madhuri has previously played a role of a courtesan in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Devdas’. Talking about how this role is different from her Devdas role, the source added, ” Though Madhuri Dixit’s character in ‘Devdas’ was of a courtesan, it is very different from what she has in ‘Kalank’. The angle to this is different and hence it won’t be anything like Chandramukhi.”
Well everybody loved Madhuri’s portrayal of Chandramukhi and we are eagerly looking forward to watching her play a courtesan’s character all over again.
