Ananya Panday was all smiles when clicked by the paparazzi as she arrived for the special screening of Karan Johar's multi-starrer Kalank, a period drama. The film is all set to hit the silver screen on April 17.
Kalank star, Alia Bhatt attended the special screening with father Mahesh Bhatt. The actress looked no less than a vision in white as she opted for pretty traditional attire.
Kalank, starring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit Nene, is a love story. Producer Karan Johar kept the audience on their toes by unravelling a little bit about the film every day before the film's trailer launch.

Karan Johar has confessed time and again how Kalank is extremely special to his heart because it was his father, producer Yash Johar's, last project that he conceptualised 15 years ago. However, the film never took off.

Kriti Sanon, who has a special song in Kalank, also attended the screening held at YRF studios. The actress will be seen grooving to the song Aira Gaira, which is also a part of the film.
Karan Johar has mentioned that this film is his dream project, and it was Abhishek, who understood his emotion and took the baton of executing it on the big screens. Therefore, Karan handed over the responsibility to Abhishek Varman to weave Kalank through his vision.

Kalank's larger-than-life sets give you a deja vu of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's creations. From the beautiful sets - that vary from temples, palaces and monuments - everything just appeals to all your senses. The outfits of the star cast are also out of the world, which exudes royalty with every glimpse.

When Yash Johar decided to make this film after the release of Kal Ho Naa Ho, the producer wanted Shah Rukh Khan to essay Varun Dhawan's character. However, with time, there were a few modifications in terms of character, and eventually, the makers held on to Varun Dhawan to play the intense character, Zafar, who falls in love with Alia Bhatt's character, Roop.

While stepping into Khan's shoes can be a tall order, Dhawan said that he brought his own interpretation to the role. At the trailer launch, Varun said that Shah Rukh sir had watched the film's teaser and he appreciated Varun for his film-choices because they will bring him closer to his audience.
