Hours after team Kalank introduced Varun Dhawan as Zafar, the second poster now reveals Dev Chaudhry, Aditya Roy Kapur’s character in the film.
Aditya Roy Kapur who was last seen in Ok Jaanu (2017), is essaying the role of Dev Chaudhry and looks stern holding a sword in his hand.
“He defines the nobility of his era! Here’s Dev,” wrote Alia Bhatt in a Twitter post. This tweet was followed by Karan Johar who wrote, “A virtuous heart with an uncorrupted mind. Presenting Dev Chaudhry. Men Of Kalank.”
Karan Johar, who is co-producing this film with Sajid Nadiadwala, in his Wednesday post had written that Kalank was filming that was born in his heart and mind 15 years ago. A film he passionately believes in and this is the last film his father, Yash Johar and he worked on before he left him.
“Kalank 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 Verma and the film Is Kalank!! Set in the 40’s but it’s heart lives on. Tomorrow the journey begins. I am excited, anxious and emotional about this one. I do hope you join us on our path to undying love.” wrote Karan in an emotional post.
Besides Aditya Roy Kapur, the film also stars Varan Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, and others. Madhuri Dixit was signed for Kalank after Sridevi’s death, who was originally supposed to star opposite Sanjay Dutt.
Set in the 1940s, Kalank was a film is a period drama and is being directed by Abhishek Varman who has earlier helmed 2 States (2014). Karan Johar’s father, the late Yash Johar, was supposed to produce Kalank but the film was shelved after pre-production.
