Mahesh Bhatt's Sadak 2, which is the sequel to his 1991 romantic thriller starring Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt will be releasing on July 10 next year. The movie which features Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt, Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur in important roles is one of the much-awaited movies. Sadak 2 will not only mark Mahesh Bhatt's comeback as a director but it also will be the first time Alia will be working with her father. Last time when Mahesh Bhatt donned director's hat was for his 1999 film Kartoos.
Reports suggest that Alia Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt's characters are all set to unmask a fake godman in Sadak 2. “Alia’s character is out to expose a fake guru who runs an ashram. She is accompanied by Sanjay Dutt’s character in this journey,'' reported Mumbai Mirror. When Mahesh Bhatt was asked about the same, he said that Sadak 2 talks about love, loss and redemption. ''To simplify a heartfelt narrative like this is to falsify it. You would be trivializing the essence of the film by suggesting that Sadak 2 is just this,'' added Mahesh Bhatt.
When Mahesh Bhatt was asked about directing Sadak 2 after such a long gap, the veteran filmmaker said, "I have never thought that I will come and direct a film like 'Sadak 2' after 20 years, but you know, I am not intending to call it my second innings or a new beginning as a filmmaker. It just happened... I do not know what tomorrow brings but I am certainly not getting into that phase with lots of scripts where I will keep on directing films''.
The shoot of Sadak 2 recently started and Alia took to Instagram to write a long note. The actress revealed that she is petrified. In an emotional post, the actor gave us a glimpse of her excitement level and revealed that she is hopeful about her new journey.
Along with the film's clapboard, Alia wrote, ''Today is Day 1 of Sadak 2. And that's my father, now also my director, holding the clap. I begin shoot in a few days and honestly, I’m petrified. I feel like a tiny mouse trying to climb a beautiful, immense, emotional mountain. I hope I make it to the top and if I fall I hope I’m able to get up again. It’s a tough climb but from everything I’ve seen and everything I’ve heard, I know every single step and misstep will be worth it! Here's to movies, family, dreams and starting out on a brand NEW journey! And what a journey it’s going to be!!!!''.
