It was my honour to play such an enchanting character. Guys, here’s Bahaar Begum! #WomenOfKalank #Kalank @duttsanjay @adityaroykapur @varundvn @aliaabhatt @aslisona @abhivarman @ipritamofficial @karanjohar #SajidNadiadwala @apoorva1972 @foxstarhindi @dharmamovies @nadiadwalagrandson
Earlier Sonakshi Sinha's look was revealed, who plays the character of Satya Chaudhry in the film. Karan wrote about Satya, "She is pure, elegant and filled with love. Here’s Satya!"
Sonakshi wrote about her character Satya as, "Love, longing, integrity and sacrifice... this is what SATYA stands for."
A character poster featuring Alia Bhatt as Roop was also revealed by the filmmaker. Giving a brief character description of Roop, Karan wrote, "To love her is to love fire. Presenting Roop! @aliaabhatt #WomenOfKalank #Kalank@duttsanjay @adityaroykapur @varundvn @aslisona @madhuridixitnene @abhivarman @apoorva1972 #SajidNadiadwala @ipritamofficial @foxstarhindi @dharmamovies @nadiadwalagrandson."
Going by Karan's description of the character, Roop is better loved from a distance, as whoever dares to come near her, is sure to get hurt. We can see Alia in a royal avatar, something that she has not portrayed on screen yet. Describing Alia's character on Instagram, Sonakshi wrote, "Free, bound only by love."
There is still much mystery surrounding the film and the only details that are available relate to the fact that it a period drama. But as posters are releasing there are a few things that can be collated from them. Sanjay Dutt plays an old patriarch, Balraj Chaudhry, a relative to Aditya Roy Kapur's Dev Chaudhry.
During a recent fan interaction, when a fan asked Varun to release the film’s trailer, he replied, “Its coming soon i promise #wewantkalanktrailer.”
Kalank will mark the return of Alia and Varun's hit pairing for the fourth time after Student of the Year (2012), Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014) and Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017). It will also see the reunion of Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit after 21 years. Madhuri was roped in Kalank as a replacement for Sridevi, who had an untimely death in February 2018.
