Earlier today, Karan Johar announced the cast of his next production, Kalank, with a mammoth cast of Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha. The one thing that’s more exciting than the announcement of the film is the casting of Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit together. Last seen together in the 1997 action-drama, Mahaanta, their reunion is definitely an exciting news for their fans.
Back in the late 80’s and early 90’s, both Sanjay and Madhuri were everyone’s favourite on-screen couple, that dazzled in many consecutive hits like Thanedaar, Saajan and Khalnayak. They were also rumoured to be in a relationship but the two never confirmed it. Now, we are even more curious to see the characters they’ll be portraying in Kalank, which is set against the backdrop of the pre-independence era of the 1940’s.
As reported, Madhuri Dixit’s role was originally going to be essayed by the late Sridevi, but after her unfortunate and untimely demise, the Tezaab actor filled in her shoes. Here’s hoping both Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit add one more blockbuster to their list of successful films together. Produced by Dharma Productions, Fox Star Studios and Sajid Nadiadwala, Kalank will hit the screens on the 19th of April, 2019.
