Notably, the movie was being planned for around 15 years now by Yash Johar and his son Karan. However, it got delayed due to several reasons. In fact, it was said to be featuring late actress Sridevi and was also titled Shiddat earlier.
However, post Sridevi's untimely death, she was replaced by Madhuri Dixit.
Interestingly, Kalank will bring back ex-lovers Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt together after almost two decades. They were last seen in 1997 release Mahaanta.
Well, given the impressive star cast of this epic drama, high hopes are being vested upon Kalank. It will be interesting to see if the movie will stand true to all the expectations.
