The film Kalank is said to be a dream project of Karan Johar which was conceptualised by him and his late father Yash Johar fifteen years ago. Helmed by 2 States fame Abhishek Varman, the movie is an epic drama set in the period of 1940s. Talking about it, Karan said, “Kalank has been an emotional journey for me. It is a gem of an idea that I had nearly 15 years ago and a film that was in a pre-production stage helmed by my father. I am now proud to pass it onto the extremely capable and visionary hands of director Abhishek Varman. Kalank has a beautifully structured story by Shibani Bathija and an exceptionally fluid narrative and screenplay by Abhishek.
