Karan Johar just launched the teaser of his much-awaited period drama Kalank with a star-cast that has everyone talking. Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha looked spectacular in this gripping yet vague teaser, which gave us a glimpse of what the story might be. Unlike most other Bollywood films that give away a chunk of the storyline in the first teaser (read Luka Chuppi), Kalank left us wanting more. With just three dialogues to go by and a whole lot of Sanjay Leela Bhansali scenery, it is safe to say that Karan Johar has a well thought out plan for this Rs 80 Crore movie.
But what KJo couldn't have seen ahead of time was the fact that 2-minute teaser would cause a meme-frenzy on social media. Especially Alia Bhatt's one and only dialogue, "Jabb kisi aur ki barbaadi apni jeet jaise lage toh humse jada barbaad koi nahi hai iss duniya mein," which has turned into a crowd favourite. The memes are rolling in at the speed of light and we have handpicked the ones that got us crackling.
Fun Fact: Karan Johar has been sitting on the storyline of Kalank for 15 years! His father, Yash Johar wanted to make the film but it never materialised and now Karan Johar is making his dream come true. In his book, The Unsuitable Boy, Karan Johar mentioned that the original cast of Kalank included the then-headliners like Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgan, Kajol, and Rani Mukherjee. Wow, that would have been something!
The release date for Kalank is set for 19th April and we can't wait to watch this extravaganza come to life on the big screen.
