Actor Akshay Anand who will be seen playing the role of Sanjay Dutt's friend told IANS, "I am one of those people who convinces him to live life for a reason. He listens to me. It's an important role even though it's a cameo. It's like the role I did in 'Ghulam'. It was a small role but the character lives on through the film."
Talking about Mahesh Bhatt who directed him in 1998 in the film 'Zakhm,' Akshay said, "He has matured a lot. He is so richly and deeply oozing with value for life. He wants to give it to a lot of people through his films and dialogues, and through the ideas that he has in his mind. 'Sadak 2' is a very different kind of a film. It's been made beautifully. You will definitely get a different kind of Bhatt sahab."
Due to the uncertainty around the reopening of theatres, which were shut down in the wake of coronavirus pandemic, the makers decided to release the film on a streamer.
