Trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed that Kalank was planned 15 years ago by Karan and his late father Yash Johar. The plot of the film is set in 1940s.
 

Kalank was to star Sridevi as one of the lead actresses but after her death, Madhuri Dixit was roped in for the role. Sridevi's elder daughter Janhvi had Instagrammed a picture of the later actress with Madhuri and wrote, "Abhishek Varman's next film was very close to mom's heart. Dad, Khushi and I are thankful to Madhuri ji for now being a part of this beautiful film."
 


Rumour had it that the film was reportedly titled Shiddat. But Karan Johar dismissed the reports with a tweet.
 

Kalank is slated to release on April 19 next year.
