Bollywood stars Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are joining each other on the big screen once again for the upcoming flick ‘Kalank’.
‘Kalank’ was the film that was meant to be released 15 years ago, and was the brain child of the late Yash Johar (father of Karan Johar). The period drama has been shelved for nearly two decades, but now Karan has brought his father’s work to life.
Sharing the first look earlier this month, Karan revealed in an emotional Ingram post, that it was dad’s last film he worked on before he passed away.
