The reunion of ex-couples Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit has created a great buzz among the movie buffs. The duo is collaborating after 21 years for Karan Johar’s production venture Kalank, which also features Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha in pivotal roles. The film will be directed by 2 States director Abhishek Varman and is set to hit the screens on April 19, 2019, during Good Friday. Sanjay and Madhuri were last seen together in 1997 in Mahaanta, which turned out to be a flop at the box office.
Interestingly, this is not the first time where an ex-couple has come together for a movie. We have examples of exes coming together and shattering records at the ticket windows. Check them out…
Salman Khan – Katrina Kaif
Post their break-up, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif worked in two movies – Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai and both turned out to be blockbusters at the box office. The cumulative business of both the films stands at staggering Rs 538 crore.
Ranbir Kapoor – Deepika Padukone
The glamorous ex-couple collaborated for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Tamasha after their separation. While YJHD turned out to be a blockbuster with a collection of Rs 190 crore, Tamasha was an average affair and had done the business of Rs 70 crore.
Coming back to Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit, they worked together in films like Saajan, Khalnayak, Thanedaar, Khatron Ke Khiladi, Ilaaka, Sahibaan, Kanoon Apna Apna and many others. Looking at the ensemble cast and backdrop of Kalank, we are expecting it to be a bonafide blockbuster. Do you share the same thought? Let us know in the comments section below…
