Madhuri Dixit who will next be seen in Abhishek Varman’s Kalank that also stars Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in pivotal roles talk about the filling the shoes of Sridevi. Yes, Sridevi was originally cast for the role Madhuri is playing in the film. Madhuri said that it was very emotional for her to take up the role, she said: " When I was on the sets, I looked at it as just another role. But, yes, I was extremely emotional when Karan Johar asked me to take up her role. I hope I make her proud."
Interestingly, Madhuri and Sridevi were leading actresses of ’80s and ’90s, though they never worked with each other, they both possessed mutual admiration for each other. Madhuri further added: "We had known each other for many years and shared a warm equation. It was difficult for everyone in the industry to wrap their heads around her sudden loss. It is still hard to accept the truth."
When asked about the character, Madhuri was hesitant and she said: "It is hard to talk about the character without revealing too much. When people watch the movie, they will realise how different it is from what I have done in my other films like Devdas where I played Chandramukhi. The role that I have here is poles apart from that."
Meanwhile, Kalank is all set to hit the theatres in April.
