Ever since the actor made a comeback into films post his imprisonment, he is vying for a big hit at the Box Office. His other films released so far – Bhoomi (2017), Panipat (2019), Prasthanam (2019), and Kalank (2019) among others in which he gave a brief appearance didn’t do wonders at the Box Office. Among the films that he is yet to bring on-screen, Bhuj: The Pride of India is a multi-starrer and Sadak 2 is the only one that seems to have a bigger chance of impressing the audience at the ticket counter.

Dutt is also ready to explore digital platforms now. He said he wants to work on OTT platforms because there’s more scope of experimentation and freedom of having a variation in content. The actor was quoted saying, “OTT platforms are flourishing, and have brought about so much variety in terms of content. They also enable artistes to experiment with material and characters. If I get a script that excited me, I would love to (foray into digital entertainment).”
Meanwhile, Sadak 2, also featuring Alia Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur was slated to hit the screens on July 10. However, considering the ongoing coronavirus lockdown, the release is likely to be pushed.
