Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starrer “Kalank” has failed to impress audiences as the collections are sliding downward side and the feedback is also not very encouraging.
The hopes with this movie were quite high as it has brought back veteran actors Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit together on the big screen after a long time and also because the pair of Varun and Alia is considered as one of the most successful pairs of Bollywood. Other than these stars, the flick also features Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha in important roles and hence, the big star-cast was undoubtedly one of the main charms that could attract movie buffs to theatres.
Despite the fact that “Kalank” has not been liked by the audiences much, actors are still getting appreciated for their performances. Alia Bhatt has also been praised for portraying the character of Roop but do you know that she was not the first choice of the makers?
Yes, you read it right! Not Alia but some other superhit actress of B-Town was preferred by the makers. Any guesses who?
Well, the makers approached Mastani of Bollywood Deepika Padukone initially for the role of Roop but she refused to play it.
The reason behind Deepika’s refusal is not known but if she had said ‘yes’, we would have seen Varun and Deepika together in any movie for the first time.
Presently, Deepika is busy in the shooting of her next movie “Chhapaak”. It is based on the life of Laxmi Agarwal and DeePee is playing the character of an acid attack survivor in the flick.
Taking into consideration the box-office condition of “Kalank”, it seems that Deepika has done the right thing by refusing to play Roop. What do you say?
