On Mahesh Bhatt's 70th birthday, the filmmaker gave us a treat by announcing his comeback as a director with Sadak 2. It turned out to be a bigger venture than expected as talents like Alia Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt joined in. Now, the latest development about the film says that Mahesh Bhatt's Vishesh Films has joined hands with Fox Star Studios to produce Sadak 2. Apart from this sequel, the two production houses will collaborate for two more ventures as well.
Talking about Sadak 2, Mahesh and Pooja had gone for a recce earlier this month. So, we can expect the film to go on the floors soon after all the star cast complete their prior commitments. While Mahesh has worked with daughter Pooja in films like Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, Junoon and Sadak, he'll be directing Alia for the first time in Sadak 2. Talking about the experience of narrating a film to his younger daughter, the Arth helmer earlier said, "It was Sanju, Mukesh and Pooja, who suggested that it should be narrated to Alia but we hadn’t considered her while writing the script. Alia is a difficult cookie to crack because she only responds with her heart; she’s very clear about whether she wants to embrace it whole-heartedly or say no."
He further added, "Honestly, she doesn’t have to say yes and prove anything vis-à-vis our relationship; I also wouldn’t belittle our relationship by putting this burden on her.” In fact, he also revealed Alia's reaction after reading the script and added, "We gave a full narration to her and by the end of it; she was left shaking and crying. That was one hell of a triumph. After all, besides being a reigning star, she’s also recognised for her tremendous merit as an actor." Mahesh Bhatt also revealed that Sanjay Dutt was the reason for his comeback as a director after 20 years.
Sadak 2 is set to hit the screens on November 15, 2019.
