Alia Bhatt reveals what Sanjay Leela Bhansali said about Kalank

Alia Bhatt has revealed the reaction of ace director Sanjay Leela Bhansali after seeing Kalank's teaser.

Right from the time Karan Johar dropped the teaser of Kalank, fans started comparing the film to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's films. Now, in an interview, Alia has revealed Sanjay's reaction after he watched Kalank's teaser.

When Alia was asked about the comparison between Kalank and Bhansali films and drawing inspiration for her song Ghar More Pardesiya from Bhansali films, the actress said, "Yes, it's more Bhansali like but actually, technically speaking, no one has really touched that world except for Sanjay Leela Bhansali. And Abhishek [Varman, director of Kalank] himself is a very big self-proclaimed, self-confessed fan. So he is very inspired by him. Even when I met Sanjay sir I told him please tell me what do you think about the teaser and he really liked it."

Varun Dhawan, who was also a part of the interaction, added to the conversation saying, "Even when I met him, when he knew about this film, he said, 'Mujhe koi kuch poochta hi nahi hai (nobody asks me anything). Madhuri-Alia together, I would love to work on a song, give music to a song on them.' I had in fact then asked Alia that what did he say to you when he saw your song."

Kalank emerged as the biggest opener of 2019 by making Rs 21.6 crore on its opening day. With more than 40 per cent occupancy, the multi-starrer struck gold at the box office on first day of its release. The numbers, however, dropped on Thursday and showed only a slight jump on Friday despite a holiday (Good Friday).

Alia is currently gearing up to star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next film Inshallah opposite Salman Khan.
