Abhishek Varman's latest directorial venture Kalank is faring decently at the box office. However, the film was expected to do much better at the ticket windows considering its stellar star cast and the fact that it has been made on a big budget by Karan Johar. The pre-release buzz around Kalank was also fantastic and the love saga even had a brilliant first day as it became the biggest opener of 2019 by raking in Rs 21.60 crore. But on day 2, the movie witnessed a sharp drop in its collection and the scenario was pretty much the same on day 3 as well.

Though yesterday was Good Friday, KJo's magnum opus couldn't clock in big figures. According to Boxofficeindia.com, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt's love saga minted around Rs 10.75 to 11 crore on Friday, bringing its total three-day collection to around Rs 44 crore which is quite underwhelming.
Further, Boxofficeindia.com noted, "Kalank was pretty much flat on the third day which was a restricted holiday for Good Friday. The film hardly went up when it should have been going up around 30-40%. These collections were up in some places but some places were actually down where this holiday is not in play."

Also featuring Madhuri Dixit Nene, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt, and Kunal Kemmu, Kalank arrived in theatres on April 17 and opened to mixed reviews from the critics. The film, which is Varun and Alia's fourth collaboration, has been co-produced by Karan Johar, Sajid Nadiadwala, and Fox Star Studios.
