The trailer of Kalank got unveiled yesterday and Varun Dhawan nails the trailer and has managed to win hearts with the trailer. While interacting with the media at the trailer launch event, Varun Dhawan reacted to replacing Shahrukh Khan in Kalank! Varun said he was aware that Shahrukh Khan was the first choice to play the lead in Kalank but he did not discuss the project with the superstar after he came onboard.
The romantic-drama originally featured Shahrukh along with a reported cast of Kajol, Rani Mukerji, and Ajay Devgn, among others. The actor said Karan eventually abandoned the idea to direct the film and did not want to revisit the story after his father’s death. Varun was speaking at the trailer launch of the film here.
Kalank is helmed by Abhishek Varman and Varun said the director used to be his roommate during “My Name is Khan” when they both served as assistant directors. Varun, however, said he recently met Shahrukh after the teaser released and had asked him for his opinion. He had some good things to say about that. He was happy when he told him that he had applied ‘soorma’. King Khan replied with a smile and these are roles that will get him closer to the audience. Kalank is scheduled to release on April 17.
