The new posters show the characters of Kapur and Dutt, who are likely father and son, hiding their true selves in Abhishek Varman's film.
Kalank character posters: Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt are obscured by shadows, rain
Mumbai - 17 Mar 2019 0:00 IST
In the upcoming period film Kalank (2019), it seems as though the Chaudhry men, Balraj and Dev, have something to hide as evidenced by their character posters.
The most recent poster of Sanjay Dutt as Balraj Chaudhry displays the actor as weary and forlorn, looking out from his position of privilege in his car. The actor is seen with a cigar and in fine clothes. The bottom of the poster has an angry mob making its way towards him, perhaps?
Producer Karan Johar says of Balraj that he is a man of a few words. Incidentally, the real name of Sanjay's father, Sunil Dutt, was Balraj, and he was born in Jhelum, now in Pakistan, and came over to India after Partition.
#Balraj is a man of few words. #Kalank in cinemas 17th April. @duttsanjay#AdityaRoyKapur @Varun_dvn @aliaa08 @sonakshisinha @MadhuriDixit @abhivarman @apoorvamehta18 #SajidNadiadwala @ipritamofficial @foxstarhindi @DharmaMovies @NGEMovies pic.twitter.com/xI1DGJGBC1— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) March 16, 2019
Meanwhile, Aditya Roy Kapor's Dev is shown with his back towards everyone, protecting someone or something. He is largely in the shadows, but looks to be facing the angry mob head-on with a sword by his side.
According to Johar, Dev is "the face of nobility".
