‘2 States’, which released in the first quarter of 2014, was a hit for the Dharma Production banner starring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Many were wondering what debutante director Abhishek Varman would do next and now the answer has come that he will make a period film.

The film is reportedly to be titled ‘Kalank’ and is a project that Karan Johar wanted to make over half a decade ago. The story is to be a love saga which has the backdrop of the partition. Yash Johar., Karan’s father, is meant to have done a lot of research for the project but Karan couldn’t bring himself to make the film because it had to many memories of his father.

Now, it seems he spoke to Varman about it and it will be made. It remains to be seen who is cast in the film.
