New Delhi: Ever since the trailers and first look posters of Kalank started circulating online, Bollywood buffs have been in a tizzy.  The movie marks an extremely emotional project for Karan Johar since it was the last film worked on by his father, Dharma Productions helmer, late Yash Johar. The movie is directed by Abhishek Varman who has earlier helmed 2 States and has an ensemble star cast of Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur among others.

Grand, opulent and truly regal, the teaser hinted at Kalank being an intense love story about wavering loyalties. Packed with grand VFX and an opulent set, the teaser did give everyone major Sanjay Leela Bhansali vibes too. The movie hit cinema screens on April 17 and the period drama has not managed to live up to its hype.
