The film will see an ensemble cast including Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur sharing screen space. Abhishek Varman will direct the epic drama which will hit the screens on 19 April, 2019. The shooting for Kalank began earlier in April.
The movie, which will be set in the 1940s, was planned 15 years ago by Karan and his late filmmaker-father Yash Johar. It is being co-produced by Karan, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta's Dharma Productions, Sajid Nadiadwala's Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Fox Star Hindi.
Kunal was last seen in another ensemble, the fourth installment of the Golmaal franchise — Golmaal Again — alongside Ajay Devgn, Parineeti Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade and Tabu.
While Kalank marks his maiden collaboration with Dharma Productions, all his co-stars have starred in Johar's productions in the past — Varun and Alia in the Dulhania and Student of the Year, Dutt in Agneepath, Madhuri in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Sonakshi in Ittefaq and Aditya in Ok Jaanu. The film also stars Kiara Advani in a special song.

Actress Alia Bhatt announced her pregnancy a few months ago. On various controversies surrounding the same, she wrote, ‘The man is also having a child, why bother only the woman’.
Actor Alia Bhatt is riding a crest like few actors have in recent memory. She is co-producing Darlings, is expecting her first child and has featured in a Hollywood production with stars Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan.
The filmmaker added, "I remember meeting her, she looked unwell and that day she had an almost one-page dialogue to deliver. I asked if she'll be ok and she said she would."
