Karan Johar’s upcoming production venture Kalank boasts of an ensemble cast including Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Kunal Kemmu, Madhuri Dixit and Aditya Roy Kapur. The character posters and recently released teaser of the film has already created a buzz among the audience and it would not be wrong to say that Kalank, directed by Abhishek Varman, is indeed one of the most awaited films of the year.
Now as Alia celebrates her 26th birthday today on March 15, KJo gave her a birthday present by unveiling a new poster of her character Roop. He captioned it as, "Courage has never looked this beautiful! Meet the feisty #Roop in #Kalank on 17th April." Well, we certainly agree as beautiful is an understatement for Alia as she looks straight in the camera with her hopeful eyes. See for yourself:
