One of the high-points of the teaser is that 'Kalank' pairs up popular '90's pair Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt in film after 20 long years. The pair have in the past worked in blockbuster films like 'Saajan' and 'Khalnayak'. When Dutt was asked how his experience was of working with Dixit, the actor said, "It felt good to work together after a long time. I'll try to work more with her," said the actor.

Madhuri plays Bahaar Begum in 'Kalank' which was earlier offered to Sridevi. After Sridevi`s demise last year, the role was offered to Madhuri. "Firstly, her demise was sad news for us and when I was approached for the role, it was not easy for me. I have immense respect for her. She was a good artiste and a good human being too. To step into the role, when you look into it as an actress, it`s a different scenario as you add your own inputs to the character, but we used to remember her on sets as she was a part of the film," said Madhuri at the event.
