After a long hiatus, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt returns to direction with ‘Sadak 2’. On his 70th birthday, the ace filmmaker announced the making of the sequel of the blockbuster film. The film will star Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur will the original stars Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt.
Mahesh Bhatt announces directing his two daughters Alia and Pooja together. “As I step into the sunset years of my life, the last act, there’s something that has happened to me. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I will ever hear the words — a Mahesh Bhatt film — mentioned around me again. Alia used to say, ‘Papa, make a film’. And I would tell her that I am like an extinct volcano. But then, suddenly one day, the volcano was rumbling. You know, they say that autumn is another spring, so as I go into my autumn years, it’s the process of what is called decomposition or decay, that too is a way of life.”The maverick filmmaker is equally thrilled to direct Sanjay once again. He says, “Don’t forget that the two years he spent in jail haven’t been tapped into by anyone. And I know that buried in there is that unspoken anguish, which I had tuned in to during the making of Naam (1986). I think life has brought us a full circle. If there ever was an actor who has trusted me and went on to become a star purely because of his ability to surrender, it’s Sanju. He is like that lion, who perhaps can only be tamed by the language of love.”
Alia took to her Instagram stories to share a group picture of Team 'Sadak 2'. She also posted a special message for Mahesh Bhatt. The proud daughter wrote, “Dear Daddy, 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! Happy Birthday
