The makers of Kalank, an upcoming period drama set in the 1940s, on Thursday shared stills from the film starring actors Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Sonakshi Sinha. The stills come in anticipation of Kalank’s title track which is expected to release on Saturday. Actor Sonakshi Sinha captioned these pictures as “ Get ready to be immersed in eternal love soon... “
The title track, called Kalank Nahi Ishq Hai, is expected to be a beautiful and dramatic love song composed by Pritam. It is sung by Arijit Singh and written by Amitabh Bhattacharya. A small bit of the song has been released as a teaser by Alia Bhatt. The entire song will release on 29 March. Two songs, Ghar More Pardesiya and First Class, have already been released and well-received by the audience.
After Varun Dhawan announced that the song will be releasing on Friday, the release was shifted by a day for various reasons. Karan Johar apologised for the delay.
We apologise from the bottom of our hearts! Will have to delay our #KalankTitleTrack by a day...all of us ! Pritam...Amitabh...Arijit and Abhishek want to present the best version of our favourite track in the film...song will be out Tomorrow! A big sorry again from team #kalank— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) March 29, 2019
Alia Bhatt also shared a short clip of the making of the title track.

Karan Johar earlier shared a glimpse of his upcoming period film Kalank along with a heartfelt note dedicated to his father Yash Johar. “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...” he wrote.
The biggest love song of the year, coming soon!#KalankTitleTrack @duttsanjay @Varun_dvn @aliaa08 @sonakshisinha @MadhuriDixit @abhivarman @karanjohar @apoorvamehta18 #SajidNadiawala @ipritamofficial #ArijitSingh @OfficialAMITABH @foxstarhindi @NGEMovies @ZeeMusicCompany #Kalank pic.twitter.com/FTb1nPy3tq— Dharma Productions (@DharmaMovies) March 28, 2019
