Despite having a meg star cast, Karan Johar's Kalank didn't do well on the box office and was not liked by the audience too. It featured Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur. The film was made on a big budget of Rs 150 crore but could not earn much. In fact, Kalank received a negative feedback from the critics too. Recently, Madhuri Dixit had talked about the film's failure and now another star of the movie brought up his view. 
In an interview with PTI, Varun opened up about the same. He said, "It affected me. The film wasn't liked by the audience. And it deserved not to do well. It is very clear if the audience likes a film it should do well and they did not like Kalank. It is a learning for me. I have processed it and learnt what I had to from it and (I am taking it in stride)." 
"Sometimes something doesn't work and then overall things go wrong. It is for the first time I went through a failure and it had to effect me. "If it did not affect me, it would mean I don't love my films. I love my films to death. I am glad it affected me. Now I am in a good space. And I am excited about my next film Street Dancer and looking forward to doing Coolie No 1," he added. Meanwhile, he is shooting for Remo D'Souza's Street Dancer which will hit theatres on January 24. He will also be seen in the remake of Coolie No. 1, helmed by his dad David Dhawan.
