Meet the feisty #Roop in #Kalank on 17th April. @aliaa08 @duttsanjay #AdityaRoyKapur @Varun_dvn @sonakshisinha @MadhuriDixit @abhivarman @apoorvamehta18 #SajidNadiadwala @ipritamofficial @foxstarhindi @DharmaMovies @NGEMovies pic.twitter.com/NlWnd6WnYV
The teaser of the film suggests a love triangle between her character and those of Varun Dhawan's Zafar and Aditya Roy Kapur's Dev. Both actors also had new posters revealed for their characters yesterday.
However, interestingly, Roop's image is set against a backdrop of a retelling of the Ramayana in the film, where Sita is captured by Ravan. It remains to be seen how the tale fits into the period film directed by Abhishek Varman.
Besides Kalank, the actress is starring in the Brahmastra (2019) trilogy with Ranbir Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan. She was announced as one of the stars of SS Rajamouli's period film, RRR (2020), along with Ajay Devgn, Ram Charan and Jr NTR just yesterday.
The young star, who has already got good reviews for her performance in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy (2019), seems to have the next couple of years sorted.
Kalank, also starring Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt, is due to be released on 17 April.
