Though recently snakes sabotaged the set of Kalank, the shooting of this grand Karan Johar production is in full swing.

As per a report in an Indian daily, Madhuri Dixit will display her dancing prowess in the partition drama. The film will apparently see Madhuri as a dance teacher to Alia and Kiara Advani.

A source revealed to the outlet: ”Madhuri who is known for her dancing skills, will be seen playing mentor to Bhatt and Advani’s character. In fact, Advani is only making a cameo appearance in a special song. Madhuri is undergoing rigorous preparation for the role.”

Madhuri and Alia will also shoot for a special dance number. The source further added: ”Madhuri and Alia will start rehearsing for the dance number in a month’s time.”

Earlier, Madhuri Dixit had shared her excitement of being a part of Kalank in a tweet earlier. She posted:

“Just finished my shoot with @AnilKapoor and #indrakumar on the sets of #TotalDhamaal and was phenomenal as usual. Now arrived at the sets of #Kalank with @karanjohar for the look test. The sets are breathtaking. Can’t wait for you to see both films!!”

About the film, Karan had told Hindustan Times earlier, “Kalank has been an emotional journey for me. A germ of an idea that I had nearly 15 years ago; a film that was in pre-production stage helmed by my father. I am now proud to pass it on to the capable and visionary hands of our director, Abhishek. The film is a beautifully structured story by Shibani Bathija, and has an exceptionally fluid narrative and screenplay by Abhishek.”

Kalank also stars Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur in lead roles.
