One of the reasons why everyone is excited for Kalank is Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit reuniting on the big screen after a gap of 22 years. One of the most loved jodis of 90s, Sanjay and Madhuri starred in many blockbuster films like 'Saajan', 'Khalnayak', 'Thaanedaar' amongst others. On the personal front, the duo were even rumoured to be a couple in real life in 90s until they apparently split on an ugly note.
Cut to 2019, Sanjay and Madhuri will be seen together in Abhishek Verman's Kalank. Recently in an interview with Mid-day, Dutt confessed that he was nervous working with the 'dhak-dhak' girl after so many years.
