Actor Sanjay Dutt will be seen sharing the screen with his Khalnayak co-star Madhuri Dixit after a period of over 21 years in their upcoming film Kalank. The film’s teaser gives glimpses of the two actors though not in the same frame. However, the actor has confirmed that they have a scene together and calls working with her an ‘amazing’ experience.

On being asked about how it was to work with her, Sanjay told DNA with a smile, “Working with her is a pleasure. What is the time frame that we hadn’t met or seen each other? Two decades, perhaps a little more. Madhuri is such a great actor. I’ve done many films with her — Thanedaar (1990), Saajan (1991), Khalnayak (1993), Mahaanta (1997)… I can’t even recall in one go. So, to work with her again in that one scene that we did together in Kalank was amazing.”

Calling her a matured actor, he went on to add, “She’s got that command as an actor. It’s a pleasure to share screen space with her after so many years. So much has gone past, people have matured. She herself comes across as such a matured actor.”


Kalank is a complicated love story that also stars Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha. Varun plays Zafar in the film who falls in love with Alia’s character Roop who eventually gets married to Aditya’s character Dev in the film.
