Karan Johar signs Abhishek Varman to direct Kalank

Karan Johar seems to be on a movie announcement spree and will be busy constantly switching roles as a director, producer and actor. While he will be making a full-fledged debut as an actor with Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet, he will be directing Ae Dil Hai Mushkil with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma in the lead. And now, he has announced yet another film titled Kalank, which Karan will be producing under his banner Dharma Productions.

Kalank will be directed by Abhishek Varman, who directed 2 States for the same banner. In fact, the film in question is said to have an emotional connect with Karan Johar, since his father Yash Johar was the one who conducted research on the subject of this film. Dealing with human emotions, Kalank is a period love story which tries to find its identity amidst the dangerous political situation during Partition. Also, from what we hear, Yash Johar had even visited Lahore for the film and it has been his dream to see the film come to life. However, it is being said that Karan Johar, after the death of his father, could not bring himself to direct it and when Abhishek expressed his wish to do a period drama, the generous producer immediately offered him this plot to develop.

The film is under pre-production currently and the cast is not yet finalized.
