Sadak 2 is on; Pooja Bhatt shares a pic of Sanjay Dutt and Mahesh Bhatt from the sets!
Unlike the original Sadak, the sequel won’t be helmed by Mahesh Bhatt. He will only write and produce it.
In 1991, Mahesh Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt collaborated for Sadak and it became a cult hit. The movie was a dark drama and was ahead of its time. Now, after 27 long years, a remake of the cult film is in the making. There were reports that the sequel will have new faces like Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra in lead roles, but we don’t think that’s happening. Even though the sequel is coming back after such a long time, the makers have decided to stick with its original actors i.e. Sanju Baba and Pooja. Well, the news is confirmed and it is revealed by none other Pooja herself. The 46-years-old actress took to social media and shared a pic of Sanju and Mahesh Bhatt from the sets.
Pooja captioned the image, "And Mahesh whispers to Sanju what Shiva is really all about- “Shiva is an illuminator, protector, teacher of the ultimate wisdom in silence. We get comfort only when we abandon everything that we hold dearly to ourselves and seek refuge in that Rudra , totally resigning, and surrendering to that energy!” #Shiva #Mahesh #Sadak2 #actorsanddirectors #sanjaydutt #maheshbhatt #tattoo #shivatattoo #behindthescenes #candidcamera."
Talking to a leading tabloid, Mahesh Bhatt earlier said, "Sanjay who was 32 when we made the original, comes back as a 54-year-old Ravi into the 21st century world that is collapsing in front of his eyes, where the distinction between the house and the ‘sadak’ is fast disappearing. The story has the emotional connect of the films I made back in the’90s which brought a lump to the throats of the viewer. I could see that in the reaction of those present at the narration. They were visibly moved.”
Pooja Bhatt added, "While my character is unique, it is going to be about Sanju from the first frame to the last. It’s my father’s ode to him."
