As expected, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt-starrer Kalank has taken a huge opening at the box office. The hype has justified the business and we are sure it will bring a huge smile on the producer's face. As per the early estimates, the magnum opus has collected around Rs 22 crore yesterday and if the official collections remain similar or higher, it will beat Kesari to become the biggest opener of the year. Interestingly, Kesari was also produced under the banners of Dharma Productions.
Apart from the multiplexes, the film has performed very well in the single screens. The hit pair of Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt seems to have worked again among the cine-goers. Since the film has an extended weekend of 5 days, we are expecting the period drama to rake in a minimum collection of Rs 90 crore in this period. We will witness a drastic screen crunch for Kalank as Avengers: Endgame will arrive on April 26 and will definitely shatter all the records at the ticket windows. Directed by Abhishek Varman, the film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Kunal Kemmu and Kiara Advani in key roles. It is co-produced by Fox Star Studios and Nadiadwala and Grandson.
Since the film has received mixed reviews, it'll be interesting to see how the film will perform in the coming days. Our critic Urmimala Banerjee has given Kalank three stars and wrote, "Kalank is a fabulously mounted film with great performances. If you can overlook the length, it will be a good watch. This has to be one of Varun Dhawan's best." So, are you planning to watch the film in the coming days? Tweet to us @bollywood_life.
