On the eve of her father's (Mahesh Bhatt) 70th birthday, Alia Bhatt gave a pleasant surprise to her fans announcing that she is a part of Sadak 2. The actress had written a long note on Instagram which read, "On your 70th Birthday you have given me the greatest present I could ask and dream for. You are directing me! Sadak 2 is a dream come true.. What I thought will never be possible you have made possible. Thank you daddy from the bottom of my heart, soul and bones.This will be a journey of discovery.. Of life, movies, feeling and most of all.. Of a father and daughter. I love you my not-so-old man." Besides Alia, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur too has come on board for the film which is scheduled to release on August 15, 2019.
While the sequel to Sadak (1991) is close to every actor's heart, it is even more special to Bhatts as it will be the first project wherein Alia and her father have come together. Recently, the Raazi actress was asked about the original film at an event. "I was very young when I watched it. At the time, I was shocked to see my mother (Soni Razdan) getting thrown out of a window in one of the scenes," she had said.
"I paused that scene, and asked daddy how could he do that--throwing my mother out of the window. For I don't think, I had the sense to grasp the fact that it was just a movie -- she was not really thrown out," she added. Talking about the 1991 film, it was a romantic thriller and saw Pooja Bhatt as a sex worker. The reboot version of the film will reportedly shed light on the issue of depression.
