Working in Kalank is double the fun for me: Alia Bhatt
The actor has started shooting for her next, which will be produced by Dharma Productions
Alia Bhatt says working in Karan Johar's Kalank has been double fun for her as she is getting a chance to work with a unique cast in a film being directed by friend Abhishek Verma.
Alia said this while interacting with the media along with Vicky Kaushal and director Meghna Gulzar during the promotions of their upcoming film Raazi here on Saturday.
She has already started shooting for Kalank, which will be Dharma Productions' next film starring Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt.
"I am really excited. I think the whole casting of the film is really unique," she said.
About Verma, with whom she has already worked in his debut film 2 States, she said: "The film is directed by a very dear friend Abhishek, so for me, it is a double fun -- working with all these beautiful artistes and to be getting directed by Abhishek."
Alia feels the work one does must have a challenge. Otherwise, it becomes simple and similar and there is no fun and the feeling of accomplishing something.
"The only thing I can say is that, whatever films I love, I make sure I take it up. Makers of those films get to struggle to sort out my dates, so I want to tell the filmmakers that they should come to me with scripts, but when I will agree to do the film, then they have to manage their dates for me."
Kalank, which is being co-produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Hiroo Yash Johar, Apoorva Mehta and Fox Star Studios, will release on April 19, 2019.
