Speaking about the film heading for OTT release, he said, “How can one plan an OTT or theatrical release when the film is not even ready? Once the shoot is complete, we will begin post-production. We will cross each hurdle as and when it comes. We got the go-ahead from Film City yesterday. So, we are putting things in order and will soon determine the studio we can shoot in. We will have to build a small set for the song.”
Meanwhile, Sadak 2 starring Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt in the titular roles. Earlier, speaking about the film, Mahesh 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 connection 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 in the narration. They were visibly moved.”
Sadak 2 is a sequel to 1991 film Sadak starring Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt.
