Abhishek Varman’s next directorial venture ‘Kalank’ is possibly the biggest film of 2019. It is a power-packed ensemble film that boasts of some terrific names of Bollywood. The powerful line up features Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha along with Madhuri Dixit-Nene and Sanjay Dutt. The first teaser promo of the period saga will be unveiled this Tuesday.

But before you witness the world that Karan Johar and Abhishek have created, here’s a sneak peek into what the film is about and who’s paired opposite who in the film. A source exclusively told Bollywood Bubble, “It’s the story of a Hindu family – the Choudharys who are in East Punjab – which became part of Pakistan post Partition. Set in the 1940s, the film is a tale of love amidst sacrifices and the Hindu-Muslim riots that happened post the cultural divide.”

Now, to the most important question? Who plays what?

The source further added, “Sanjay Dutt is the patriarch whereas Aditya Roy Kapur is his son. He is married to Sonakshi Sinha who’s ailing from a terrible disease. After her, Adi gets married to Alia Bhatt. Later, she falls in love with Varun Dhawan who is a flamboyant guy and the biggest womaniser in the neighbourhood. Madhuri is a courtesan who teaches dance and Alia goes to learn dancing from her. Kiara Advani is her daughter and Alia and she become good friends. But it’s one secret that turns all their world upside down.”
