Karan confirmed and told a leading newspaper, “Kalank has been an emotional journey for me. A germ of an idea that I had nearly 15 years ago, a film that was in pre-production stage helmed by my father. I am now proud to pass it on to the capable and visionary hands of our director, Abhishek. The film is a beautifully structured story by Shibani Bathija, and has an exceptionally fluid narrative and screenplay by Abhishek.”

In addition, the film marks the collaboration of the three biggest production houses of Bollywood industry including Dharma Productions, Fox Star Studios, and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment.

Kalank will go on the floors this month and will hit the theatres next year on April 19.
