The song has been composed by Pritam. However, since the singers are yet to be finalized for the song, the Kalank team shot on a scratch version of the track over four nights. A source close to the film revealed that Kiara Advani makes a special appearance in the song. The source said, “Varun began his rehearsals with Remo’s team four days before shoot and Kiara joined him on the last two days. In between shots, the actor would catch up on his workouts in a gym specially built on set.”
Varun’s co-star from his earlier films like Student of the Year, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Alia Bhatt is also a part of the film and paired opposite Varun. She is expected to join the shoot today. This will be the actors’ fourth film together.
Kalank is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Fox Star Studios and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and is a period drama set in 1940s, reportedly having the Partition as its backdrop. The movie also features Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit who stepped in for Sridevi after the latter’s untimely demise, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha. It is slated to release on April 19, 2019.
Varun, who has his 31st birthday coming up on Tuesday will probably have to celebrate it on the sets and a big celebration is expected to be organized by his co-stars and the crew as he shoots through the night.
