Cinematographer Binod Pradhan was also in awe of the set and said that this is the largest set he has ever worked on. He compared it to the set of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Kalank’s was bigger and massive. Sonakshi could not believe her eyes when she first set foot on the set of the film and exclaimed, “This is madness.” However, probably the best compliment came from lyricist Javed Akhtar who called the Kalank’s set as “unbelievable” and told Aditya who asks him how he liked the set, “Mujhe nahi pata aajkal bhi aise set hota hai. Pakeezah wagaira ka hota tha.”
Kalank is all set to release on April 17.
