It was hard to digest the news: Madhuri Dixit opens up about replacing Sridevi in Kalank
In a recent interview with a leading media organisation, Madhuri Dixit opened up about replacing Sridevi (after her death in February last year) in Karan Johar's Kalank. She is reportedly said that it was difficult to digest the news. “What took time was to digest the whole thing that happened. It was so shocking, I was like 'you want me to do this role?’ because even they (filmmakers) were stuck. They had to go on.”
She further added, “As a person, it was hard to deal. As an actor, you know the role, the script. It's a different matter altogether. But to accept the truth was very difficult. I don't think anybody has come to terms with her absence."
Kalank features an ensemble cast of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur.
Madhuri will soon be seen in Total Dhamaal as well.
