On International Women’s Day, Kalank makers teased the first look of Alia Bhatt’s character Roop, Madhuri Dixit’s Bahaar Begum and Sonakshi Sinha’s Satya. “A character unlike any other I’ve played! Presenting Roop!” Alia shared the poster in which she is dressed as a bride.

Madhuri wrote about Alia’s Roop, “She’s full of life and has a heart of gold,” while Sonakshi added, “Free, bound only by love! This is Roop!”  

Sonakshi described her character Satya as, “Love, longing, integrity and sacrifice... this is what SATYA stands for,” while Alia wrote that she is “the one who holds the family together.” Madhuri shared the photo from Kalank and wrote, “Here’s Satya! The one who is an ocean of love.”


Alia Bhatt wrote about Madhuri’s character from Kalank, “The ethereal and enigmatic enchantress. Here’s Bahaar Begum!” while Karan Johar termed her the queen of hearts, “Enchanting, ethereal & timeless. The true ‘Begum’ of hearts, Bahaar!” Madhuri herself wrote on Twitter, “It was my honour to play such an enchanting character. Here’s Bahaar Begum!”


On Thursday, the first looks of Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur from the multi-starrer film were released. Johar took to his Instagram account to share the first look of Sanjay, who appears to be the wisest of the lot. He wrote, “The most powerful voice of the table, the formidable Balraj Chaudhry. @duttsanjay #MenOfKalank #Kalank.”

Sanjay’s character looks like someone who, despite being in power and being the most “powerful voice of the table,” is down to earth and compassionate. He looks intense in the poster, sporting a salt and pepper beard look and wearing old school glasses. Alia Bhatt described his character as, “If #Kalank was a kingdom, he would be king! Presenting Balraj! #MenOfKalank #Kalank.”

Earlier in the day, the makers of the period drama released the character posters of Varun and Aditya. Karan shared the first glimpse from the upcoming film last night and also penned an emotional note. The filmmaker went onto share that how much the film, that was conceptualised 15 years ago and one on which even his late father Yash Johar worked on, meant to him.
