Kalank starts its journey four years later to the date when 2 States hit the theatres back in 2014. Talking about it, Sajid Nadiadwala said, “2 States' had released on April 18 in 2014, and 'Kalank' begins its journey on the same date, four years later. This multi-starrer with a fascinating story will cross all borders, under the capable direction of Abhishek Varman. It will be historic in the true sense of the word. I am genuinely happy to be back with Fox Star Studios and Karan Johar. This film is special to all of us.”
Earlier, Sridevi was roped in to star in Kalank, but her untimely demise has robbed Abhishek Varman and Karan Johar to work with the veteran actress. Now the love story set against partition will see Madhuri Dixit in place of Sridevi.
