This is how Twitter users reacted to Kalank:
As Avenger Enggame is all set to hit the theatres on April 26, Kalank star Varun Dhawan was quoted saying Our film is coming out nine days before Avengers, even internationally we are getting a big release. Nine days is a lot for Kalank to be seen and liked by people. These days, if people like a film, it works. So if they like Kalank, it will continue to run. There is enough screen space for both these films to run, he further added.
Recently, Kalank actor Aditya Roy Kapur was noted talking about his character in the movie. In an interview with ians, he said that he is playing a character which is quite strong, a little complex yet interesting. He is the happiest when he is at a film set. Talking about the box office collections, Aditya was quoted saying that in the last two years, the way the business has changed, the way some of the formula films have flopped and some of the quirky, small budget films have done wonders at the box office, there is nothing called formula film anymore. We cannot read a script and say that ‘This is potentially a safe one to invest money in’. Perhaps that is why our film industry is becoming a more exciting place to experiment.
