Mumbai: Although the eagerly awaited forthcoming film Kalank has a stellar cast, a source close to the film says that its entire story revolves around the characters played by Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt.
“This is not to say that the other big names in the cast don’t have important roles. They do. But Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, and Aditya Roy Kapoor play characters who figure prominently in the lives of Alia and Varun. The entire plot converges on The Student Of The Year pair,” said the source.
The source also added that the cast got into the film with their eyes wide open. “Nobody’s role has been reduced. Dutt, Dixit and the others got into it with their eyes wide open and knowing fully well that Varun and Alia are Karan’s blue-eyed protégés and that they have the best roles.”
A catty actress who has worked with Karan Johar’s Dharma Production smirks, “What choice do the other actors have? Sure, Madhuri and Sanjay Dutt are iconic actors. But they have no film career left worth talking about. As for Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapoor, when was the last time they had a hit? At least Kalank ensures that they are associated with a successful film.”...
