Kalank's enigmatic teaser has left us wanting more

Such gorgeous visuals

For the first 30 seconds of Kalank's teaser video, we don't get to see the faces of any of the actors. We're introduced to the cast with the actors' backs to the camera, each in a different but equally stunning setting. Set in 1940s India, Kalank is about eternal love, and the teaser doesn't give away much. What we have been able to gauge is that Madhuri Dixit plays a courtesan, while Alia Bhatt marries Aditya Roy Kapur in the movie, despite being in love with Varun Dhawan's character.

Directed by Abhishek Varman and co-produced by Karan Johar, it stars Varun Dhawan as Zafar, Aditya Roy Kapur as Dev Chaudhry, Sanjay Dutt as Balraj Chaudhry, Alia Bhatt as Roop, Sonakshi Sinha as Satya Chaudhry and finally, Madhuri Dixit as Bahaar Begum.

Kalank releases on April 17.
