This won't be the first time when a Bollywood movie has opened ticket windows so well in advance. Owing to the same factor, Disha Patani and Tiger Shroff's Baaghi 2 had become a hit even before its release. The same factor resulted in Ranveer Singh's Simmba giving a tough fight to Shah Rukh Khan's Zero, way before either of the movies released. And they were not even opening in theatres on the same day.
Kalank was supposed to star Sridevi, when it was titled Shiddat. After the actress' demise, Madhur was roped in to play the role. At the launch, Madhuri was questioned on replacing Sridevi. To this, she said, "Ek toh bohot dukhad baat hui thi tabhi hi and when I was approached to do this role, ek heavy heart tha tabhi. Dil mein bohot saari bhaavnayein thi. Ek bohot hi achi artist aura chi insaan thi aur unke saath aisa hua.”
