“Kalank” is set in the pre-independence era of 1940s and the music was already being liked by the movie buffs. The flick was supposed to made few years ago with Karan Johar as the director and his father Yash Johar being the producer but after the sudden departure of KJo’s father, the project was put on hold.
The movie got mixed reviews but the opening on the box-office is huge and the holiday of Mahavir Jayanti might also have contributed to it. If the trend continues like this, “Kalank” will go on to become one of highest grossers of the year.
