Karan Johar’s upcoming flick Kalank which happens to be one of the most anticipating films of this year, This pre-Partition film was originally conceptualized by Karan Johar’s father, the late Yash Johar. Well recently the veteran actor Sanjay Dutt, who plays the role of father Balraj Chaudhry, revealed the reason for signing the movie. Talking to an Indian website, Sanjay shares that he had to do the movie because his character name is Balraj which is his father’s real name who also came from Pakistan during Partition. He shares that he signed this character because of his emotional connection with his character. “During the shoot of Gumrah , Yash uncle had briefly mentioned about the story. Dharma Productions is like family; so when Karan approached me with the film, I had to do it. It is also a coincidence that my character is named Balraj, which is my father’s [Sunil Dutt] real name. He too came from Pakistan during Partition, so it has an emotional connect.” shares Sanjay Dutt.
