Mahesh Bhatt returns to directing with Sadak 2, daughters Alia Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt to star with Sanjay Dutt
Mahesh Bhatt is returning to the director’s chair after 19 long years. And he is starting his second stint by directing his much-talented daughter, Alia Bhatt.
Sadak 2 has been announced with the lead cast that includes Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Alia.
Pooja and Sanjay were a part of Sadak (1991). The movie revolved around a taxi driver who is trying to rescue the girl he loves from a brothel. Sadashiv Amrapurkar played the character of Maharani in the film. Mahesh’s wife and Alia’s mother Soni Razdan also had a small part in the film.
Sadak 2 is set to release in 2020 which is 29 years after the first movie came out. This will be the first time that Alia Bhatt will be directed by Mahesh Bhatt.
On returning to the director’s chair, Mahesh Bhatt reportedly said, “Like the spider gets its thread from his own guts. The narrative of Sadak 2 is pulled out from my lived life. It’s a film about living, loving and dealing with the anguish of the loss of a loved one.”
Pooja Bhatt, who was quite a popular actor in the 1990s, has earlier worked with her father Mahesh Bhatt in films like Daddy, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, Sir, Zakhm, etc.
