A source told the tabloid, "Madhuri, who is known for her dancing skills, will be seen playing mentor to Bhatt and Advani's characters. In fact, Advani is only making a cameo appearance in a special song. Madhuri is undergoing rigorous preparation for the role."

Madhuri and Alia will start rehearsing for their upcoming dance number by June, the source added. The veteran actress began shooting for the film last week.

Abhishek Varman will direct the epic drama set in the 1940s. The film will be produced by Karan, Nadiadwala, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta. It is co-produced by Fox Star Studios.

Kalank will hit screens on 19 April, 2019. Madhuri is also busy with her maiden Marathi film Bucket List, shooting for Indra Kumar's Total Dhamaal opposite Anil Kapoor and looking into her first production 15th August.
