Last evening, Karan Johar via a social media post updated his followers that "Kalank unravels from Thursday."
He also shared the idea behind making Kalank and wrote that it is the last film his father Yash Johar worked on before he died in 2004. "A film that was born in my heart and mind 15 years ago... A film I passionately believe in... The last film my father worked on before he left us... It was his dream to see this film come through... I couldn't fulfil his dream then... My spirit was broken... But today his wish has found a relationship with celluloid... The story of turbulent relationships and eternal love has found a voice," read an excerpt from his post, to which Karan Johar also added a still from Kalank.
