On the other hand, she runs into Varun’s character (Zafar) and they fall in love. The twists and turns will keep you at the edge of your seats. But who will Alia go with in the end and what are Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt’s charcaters hiding from all of us? Well, we’ll have to see the movie to know more!

# Kalank Cast

Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha play pivotal roles. Kunal Kemmu and Kiara Advani also play interesting parts, with several other actors supporting the cast.

# Kalank Crew

Abhishek Varman has not only directed but even written the screenplay for Kalank. While the film’s story is written by Shibani Bathija, and the dialogues are given by Hussain Dalal. Vicky Kaushal’s father Sham Kaushal is the action director. Remo D’Souza, Bosco-Caesar and Saroj Khan are the choreographers. Binod Pradhan is the DoP (Director of Photography). The film has been co-produced by Karan Johar, Sajid Nadiadwala, Hiroo Yash Johar, Apoorva Mehta and Fox Star Studios.

The film’s music has been composed by Pritam, while Amitabh Bhattacharya has written the lyrics for all the songs. Shweta Venkat Mathew has done the editing for this period drama. The costumes have been designed by Manish Malhotra and Maxima Basu Golani. It is a Dharma Productions and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment film with Fox Star Studios is presenting it.

# Kalank Controversies

Initially, Kalank was supposed to be directed by Karan Johar and his late father Yash Johar was going to produce it. In fact, the pre-production work had also begun and Yashji scouted places for the shoot too. However, the film ended up getting shelved after KJo’s father passed away. Karan had mentioned how he couldn’t gather the courage to make the film and hence, he passed it on to Abhishek Varman, who nurtured it well.

The first controversy that Kalank faced was accusations of plagiarism. As soon as the teaser dropped, a Twitter user pointed out how the background score was ripped off from a popular Television series, The Flash. But composer Sanchit Balhara quashed these accusations with his post on Facebook that read, “Let me inform you, what you and some other people are referring to ‘copied’ is a basic music technique called arpeggios. When an arpeggio is played by an orchestra, it’s supposed to sound very similar to your mentioned original music of ‘Flash’. And if you consider that ‘copying’ then I would request you to start listening to composers like Mozart, Beethoven, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky to find how commonly this technique is used in classical music and film scores.”

Kalank makers were also accused of copying the story of a novel and movie going by the name of What the Body Remembers. There were several uncanny resemblances. However, Varun Dhawan denied the allegations and mentioned how he hasn’t read the book. He further revealed that Kalank is a love story with multiple layers, most of which are not in the trailer. The actor further added that if the makers were trying to copy or adapt a movie or book, they would have tried to hide it by changing the character names. The actor also added that people should watch the movie and only then jump to conclusions!

# Kalank Release date

Kalank is all set to release on April 17, which also marks the pious occasion of Mahavir Jayanti. That means the movie will release on a Wednesday.

Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel have landed in court trouble. The sisters were summoned by the court owing to the defamation case filed against them by actor Aditya Pancholi and his wife Zarina Wahab.

Two summons each were issued by Chief Metropolitan Magistrate SB Dighe against Kangana and Rangoli with regard to the four cases filed by Pancholi and his wife Zarina Wahab. The cases against Kangana are related to her interviews and statements made during a television show, while those against her sister are related to comments made on social media.

Pancholi’s lawyer Shreya Shrivastava said, “She (Kangana) had claimed that Aditya kept her under house arrest and she registered an FIR against him, but since no such FIR was ever registered, there is prima facie case that she defamed him.” She also said that Rangoli had defamed the actor and his wife by making allegations against them on social media.

The lawyer added that the next hearing will take place on July 26, while both the sisters are yet to comment or speak on the court summons.

Currently, the sisters have also been in the limelight due to the Roshan family feud between Sunaina Roshan and her family including brother Hrithik Roshan and father Rakesh Roshan. For more Bollywood news and updates, stay tuned with CineBlitz.

The Sunaina Roshan controversy is having a new development every now and then.

Rangoli took to Twitter and said that the Roshans have not only been hitting, but even sedating Sunaina. “For past one month Sunaina called Kangana every single day, she spoke to me and cried all the time, since she spoke to the media her phone is off, she told me her family doesn’t only hit her but sedate her as well. Feeling helpless don’t know what to do,” Rangoli tweeted. Check out the tweet here:

As reported earlier, Ruhail recently commented on the on-going dispute and said, “This is unfortunate. Labeling someone extremist just because he/she belongs to a certain religion is simply outrageous and needs to be condemned in strongest words.” The controversy seems to be never ending with all the upcoming developments. Let’s see what the Roshans have to comment on this. For more Bollywood news and updates, stay tuned with CineBlitz.

Team Fixerr to meet Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis today regarding the brutal attack they faced

Soham Shah, Mahie Gill and Team Fixerr were shocked when four goons entered their set and attacked them on June 19

Team Fixerr and Devendra Fadnavis

Soham Shah, Mahie Gill and team Fixerr were attacked by four notorious goons on June 19. The team of the ALTBalaji web-series was shooting its climax sequence in a private property located between Mira Road and Thane. While the morning shoot went smoothly, in the afternoon four goons entered and attacked the unit members. They broke the equipment and vanity vans and cleared out the whole set. Soham Shah was injured and his DoP also got six stitches. This has left the team reeling! And so, they plan to meet Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis with regards to the attack. In fact, they have even got an appointment for today morning (June 20) and we can’t wait to know what follows.

While talking about the attack and situation, Fixerr producer Sakett Saawhney seemed annoyed. As he mentioned, “I go to Mira Road with a unit of 100 people to shoot the climax of a webseries on a rainy day and this happens. Four men with iron rods just enter my sets and try to kill me! Are we in Jammu and Kashmir or a naxalite area that this happens? We are stepping out of the house to earn our bread and butter, that too in these rains. And these people just walk in and kill us? My director, Soham Shah, almost had a convulsion. He was hit on the back and he blacked out. My DoP got six stitches. If anyone would have died, what would we do?”

Check out the video explaining their attack right here:

Talking about the way forward, Sakett Saawhney told us about their scheduled meeting with the CM. As he added, “Ashoke Pandit, Federation of Western India Cine Employees, the Producers Association and everyone has come out and supported us. The police has also taken cognizance of the matter and are investigating it now. They are also now under pressure from the public. We are also meeting the CM, Devendra Fadnavis at the Vidhan Bhavan today (June 20). We have a meeting at 10.45 am. If he has agreed to meet us at such short notice that means he’s taken cognizance of the incident. Let’s see what happens now!”

But why didn’t they file a police complaint? Sakett Saawhney reveals, “We took a conscious decision of not filing a complaint. If we go to the cops, at the best, the culprits will be arrested and they will be out on bail tomorrow. For the next 5 – 6 years, we will be going to these court hearing at any random hour. Every time we will have to fly out for an outdoor shoot, we will have to submit our passports and ask for permission. We will be treated as those culprits. So we decided not to file a complaint, but put out this video. And with the help of a few guys and all of you, the video has gone viral and it has been noticed. ”
