“Kalank” the upcoming project of Karan Johar has already been creating waves amid the audience and has become the most expected film of the year. The concept of this pre-Partition film was originally given by Karan Johar’s father, the late Yash Johar.

Moreover, the movie is also getting popular all over because of its astral cast which includes Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit, and Sanjay Dutt.

Also, the Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt took inspiration from Sanam Saeed’s role in Zindagi Gulzar Hai to play her character in Kalank. The late producer, Yash Johar had too visited Pakistan in his life to take inspiration for set designing from our cities.

Recently, the famous Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, who plays the patriarch Balraj Chaudhry, made known the motive for signing the movie and who knew that too will have an association with Pakistan.

While talking to an Indian website, the actor told that he had to do the movie since his character name is Balraj which is his father’s real name who also came from Pakistan during Partition.

He revealed that because of his father’s connection with Pakistan, he loved his character and chose to play the role.

He said:

DURING THE SHOOT OF GUMRAH [1993], YASH UNCLE HAD BRIEFLY MENTIONED ABOUT THE STORY.

DHARMA PRODUCTIONS IS LIKE FAMILY; SO WHEN KARAN APPROACHED ME WITH THE FILM, I HAD TO DO IT. IT IS ALSO A COINCIDENCE THAT MY CHARACTER IS NAMED BALRAJ, WHICH IS MY FATHER’S [SUNIL DUTT] REAL NAME.

HE TOO CAME FROM PAKISTAN DURING PARTITION, SO IT HAS AN EMOTIONAL CONNECT.
