Karan Johar’s 15 Crore Old Delhi Set For Kalank
Karan Johar is all set to produce one of the biggest and multi-starrer films of 2019 titled Kalank that will be directed by Abhishek Varman, starring Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur in lead roles.
As reported by DNA, KJo has built a huge set for the film Kalank. A source informed, “A huge set has been erected in Film City, which is under heavy security to ensure that pictures of the interiors are not leaked. They are also taking extra measures to keep the look of the cast under wraps.”
The source told DNA that Karan has spent Rs 15 crore to build an Old Delhi set in the city. “Karan got Amrita Mahal Nakai to work on the set’s design and structure. They have created an old Delhi mohalla with a Mahal, where filming is currently on. Kalank is set against the backdrop of the Partition. Since it’s based in the 1940s, the set has been designed keeping that particular period in mind,” added the source.
The source mentioned that this film is important to Karan Johar as this was his ad Yash Johar’s project. “The film is special to Karan because his dad Yash Johar was keen that this project should materialise. Karan wants to make sure it’s one of the biggest films he’s ever produced. He wanted the whole set to express the grandeur and scale of Kalank,” said the source.
The team has already started shooting for “Kalank” and is slated to release on April 19, 2019.
