Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s Film Kalank Secures The Highest Opening Of 2019

Kalank, producer Karan Johar’s ambitious project starring Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha and Sanjay Dutt, secured the highest opening of 2019 by collecting Rs. 21.60 crore, tweeted Taran Adarsh. “Kalank starts with a bang… Emerges biggest opener of 2019 so far… Cineplexes terrific… Impressive cast and hype plus massive screen count (4,000) and Mahavir Jayanti holiday have contributed to a big total… Wednesday India business is Rs. 21.60 crore,” he posted. Taran Adarsh also confirmed that this is the highest opening day for a filming starring Alia Bhatt or Varun Dhawan. Kalank, directed by Abhishek Varman, is reportedly made on a budget of Rs. 80 crore.

Here’s the up-to-date box office report of Kalank:

Meanwhile, Box Office India also predicted a difficult path ahead for Kalank collection-wise. “The film may have got a good opening day number but there seems little for the youth and mass… The real value of this initial will only be known in a few days though the Mahavir Jayanti holiday tends to give a 25 per cent boost but no big film has released on this day in recent past,” stated Box Office India.

Kalank opened to decent reviews on Wednesday. Film critic Saibal Chattrejee gave the film a three-star rating and wrote in his review for NDTV that Kalank is a near-spotless film and added: “It is worth a viewing not only for what it says, but also for how it says it.” He singled out Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit and Varun Dhawan for extra compliments. Kalank is the story of Roop (Alia) and Zafar’s (Varun) illicit romance which destroys everything they hold dear.
