Madhuri Dixit as Bahaar Begum
As soon as the trailer of Kalank was out everybody was talking about called Bahaar Begum. The character Madhuri Dixit is playing for Kalank. Soon the comparisons were drawn with Chandramukhi from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas, which look a way similar.
But putting end to all talks Madhuri confessed, both are different at their grounds. She had been quoted as saying, “It is hard to talk about the character without revealing too much. When people watch the movie, they will realise how different it is from what I have done in my other films like Devdas where I played Chandramukhi. The role that I have here is poles apart from that.”

Sharing her look on social media, Madhuri wrote: “It was my honour to play such an enchanting character. Here’s Bahaar Begum”. She described her character as “mysterious and enchanting” and also added that she “felt blessed” playing the role. Previously Bahaar Begum was offered to Late actress Sridevi but her sudden death in February last year made director of the movie Abhishek Varman replace her with Madhuri Dixit Nene.

The actress hopes to live up to the expectations of the people and also want to make Sridevi proud. Not only this in one of the interview Madhuri told, that she was very emotional when Karan Johar asked her to take up Sridevi’s role in the film. Further, talking about her character in the movie, Madhuri said, “It was a challenge to play her with grace and heart.” Having stepped into the late Sridevi’s shoes for the role, she added, “I don’t want to let her down.”
Kalank marks Madhuri Dixit’s second project this year. The actor was previously seen in Total Dhamaal, which also starred Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh and others and is totally dipped into its success. Now she is super excited of Kalank’s release.
