Kalank box office collection day 1: The first day earning of any film paves the way for its success on the box office. There are several factors including starcast, plot of the film, direction as well as budget that play a great role in the success of film, but ultimately audiences decide the same. However, the year 2019 has witnessed failure of some movies despite having great starcast, great plot and big budget. The latest Bollywood film Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starrer Kalank surprised trade analysts with its amazing opening day success despite not getting the best ratings in the reviews by film critics.  Check out here how Kalank, Kesri and other films fared at the box office:
