Kalank is one such period drama which has great star cast including Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, and Sanjay Dutt.

However, according to media reports, as opposed to the original release date of April 19, the movie has been preponed by the makers and will now arrive in theatres 2 days prior on April 17.

“The idea is to capitalize on Mahavir Jayanti as well as Good Friday, besides Saturday and Sunday. It’s an extended weekend with two partial holidays. And going by past records, it’s a good time for a big film to release,” said a source close to the development.

The change in the release date also means that the KJo, Sajid Nadiadwala and Fox Star Studios production will get a nine-day unencumbered run, until April 26, when Avengers: End Game, the finale of the superhero franchise, explodes on screen.

There’s a mammoth of buzz around the finale of superhero franchise and releasing a film along with the Marvel film would be a no-brainer. Hence, the release has been pulled a little earlier to give it enough room to do business.
