Mumbai, March 7: The wait is finally over. Varun Dhawan on Thursday unveiled the first official look of his character Zafar from upcoming period drama “Kalank”.
“It’s been a hell of a journey playing this gem of a character. So guys, meet Zafar,” he tweeted along with a poster of the film in which he can be seen in intense look, having smudged kohl eyes, pierced ears
Even other stars of the film including Madhuri Dixit Nene, Alia Bhatt and Sonakshi Sinha introduced Varun’s character.
Alia described Varun’s character as “fearless in love, fearless for love”. Sonakshi called Zafar “the flamboyant hero of our larger-than-life world”.
Sharing a glimpse of Zafar, filmmaker Karan Johar said that Zafar “flirts with life and danger”.
Karan also dropped Aditya Roy Kapur’s first look on social media. Unlike Varun’s fierce kohl-eyed avatar, Aditya’s look is more on the compassionate side.
Yesterday, Karan posted an emotional post and shared how close the film is to his heart.
In an elaborate caption, he had explained that the film was born in his heart and mind around 15 years ago. He also revealed the film is extra special because it’s the last project his father, Yash Johar, worked on. He captioned the first look as, “A film that was born in my heart and mind 15 years ago… A film I passionately believe in… the last film my father worked on before he left us. It was his dream to see this film come through.
Directed by Abhishek Varman and produced by Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala “Kalank” also features Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapoor. It is scheduled to release on April 17, 2019.
