- "Breaking - Alia Bhatt to handle Kalank marketing," tweeted Varun
- "Hahaha...I've learnt from the best," Alia wrote
- Karan Johar is the producer of Kalank
Kalank co-stars Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan's recent Twitter exchange had us hooked immediately. Why, you ask? Well, on Wednesday, Varun Dhawan shared a cheeky tweet, wherein he wrote: "Breaking- Alia Bhatt to handle Kalank marketing." Now, Alia was quick to respond to Varun's tweet and wrote: "Hahaha...I've learnt from the best." However, it wouldn't be wrong to say that it was Karan Johar's comment on the thread that caught our attention the most. KJo, who has produced Kalank, has quite a bit of a reputation for using great promotional tactics for his films. KJo was surprised by Alia's reaction and he wrote: "Sorry! How come I don't about this? We have a team which is all set with a plan!"
Take a look at Alia and Varun's conversation here:

This is how Karan Johar reacted:

Both Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan are KJo's proteges. They made their Bollywood debut with the 2012 film Student Of The Year, which was produced under Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. Alia and Varun have co-starred in films like Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania, which were also produced by Karan Johar.
Last month, Alia and Varun shared identical posts on their Instagram profiles, in which they could be seen standing in front of a graffiti wall with a giant painting of Rajinikanth. Both the actors added the hashtag "#Kalank." However, they clarified that it is not a look from their film. ICYMI, this is the post we are talking about:
After the wrap of Kalank, Alia and Varun shared adorable grey scale pictures of themselves on social media and wrote extensive posts for each other.
