Actor-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt, who is currently working on her next film Sadak 2 revealed that it was her Sadak co-star Sanjay Dutt, who took the initiative to make the sequel. The 1991 romantic thriller was helmed by Mahesh Bhatt and featured Pooja and Dutt in lead roles. Makers have announced the sequel, however, they haven't disclosed cast and crew.
On this Pooja said: "The production house of the film will announce the cast and crew. All I can say is that it is happening and I also want to mention that it was Sanjay Dutt who initiated it. He was the one who came to me and said 'why were we not making Sadak 2?'... On his request, I went to tell them (Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt) about Sanjay Dutt's urge and desire to work in this film... They have a connection which I don't think anybody has..."
When asked if she would return to acting with Sadak 2, Pooja said: "I was spoiled because I had the best of Mahesh Bhatt and I had no desire to really act when he quit direction. But I think with this film, we are going to go back to the 90s where filmmaking was more organic and the learning was greater."
Talking about the movie's development, Mahesh Bhatt said: "We have very clearly said that Sadak is the franchise which has flowered on its own after a long time. We have a brilliant script which has been put together by me and my co-writer. Now people have to wait for the proper announcement because that is the prerogative of my brother Mukesh."
Sadak 2 is presented by Mahesh Bhatt in association with Vishesh Films and it is being produced by Mukesh Bhatt. The movie will release on November 15, 2019.
