"Kalank" Flop: Sonakshi Sinha And Aditya Roy Kapur Faces Down Days And Tough Times In Careers

Kareena Kusari |Apr 23, 2019

All glitters are not gold, and "Kalank" is such a typical example of this adage. Its massive failure may drastically affect the career of Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur.

Kalank with an all-star cast including Alia BhattAditya Roy Kapur, Varun Dhawan,  and Sonakshi Sinha had an incredible opening at the box office on April 17. However, it has currently struggled to stay afloat since the second day. According to some trade experts, Abhishek Varman’s movie can face a crumble business at the box office with a total collection of approximately Rs 80 crore maximum.

Despite being Karan Johar’s most costly production, Kalank has not received an enthusiastic welcome by critics and the audience alike. And this failure will undoubtedly lead to a massive loss for Kalank's producers. As for the cast, it seems like Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan might be alright with this severe flop. Nonetheless, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha might become the only two actors who will be harshly affected by this unexpected failure.

Though Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt played pivotal roles in Kalank, a flop would not be a big deal at all. Previously, both superstars possessed distinguished careers with commercially successful movies. Therefore, Kalank could not be a severe obstacle to them. The duo needs to keep on moving with their new Bollywood projects and forget this audience-rejected flick.

Nevertheless, success and good fortune haven't come to Sonakshi Sinha yet. The 31-year-old actress is now struggling to seek success with her movies. From Noor, Ittefaq to Kalank, her choices of the film seemed to be awful as none of them did well at the box office. Sharing her thoughts on this matter, Sonakshi stated that it was her bad luck. “But I don't lose hope; I always look forward to doing my best," she said.

Meanwhile, things are also not going well for Aditya Roy Kapur either. All his latest movies such as Fitoor and Ok Jaanu all became disasters and received negative feedback from the critics and the audiences. The actor had done his best during the filming of Kalank, including losing muscle and sporting a leaner physique. Nevertheless, he once again ended up with a hopeless movie.

Getting a lead role in a big and highly-anticipated project such as Kalank is a dream for any actor and actress, especially for Sonakshi and Aditya who are having a difficult time in their careers. Nonetheless, the movie eventually crushes all their hopes.

Kalank is a love story which took place in the 1940s which also features Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit in the lead cast. Abhishek Varman’s directorial period drama has already hit the theatres since April 17.
