It is to be noted that Madhuri Dixit’s role was earlier supposed to be played by Sridevi. After her demise, Madhuri stepped into her shoes. In an interview with DNA, she said, “When I was on the sets, I looked at it as just another role. But, yes, I was extremely emotional when Karan asked me to take up her role. I hope I make her proud. We had known each other for many years and shared a warm equation. It was difficult for everyone in the industry to wrap their heads around her sudden loss. It is still hard to accept the truth. I don’t think anyone of us has still come to terms with her absence. We will always feel the void.”
For the uninitiated, ‘Kalank’ is a multi-starrer film that will star Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Madhuri Dixit in pivotal roles. It will be releasing in April 2019.
