The makers of the remake of the 1991 super hit, Sadak, have reportedly retreated to Indian locations and are finalising spots in the country instead of the initial plan to shoot Sadak 2 in Romania. The decision comes after days of recce in Romania. Actress Pooja Bhatt, who starred in the original film and will also be a part of the sequel, took to her Twitter handle to spill beans on the reason.
To the claim that filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt had flown to Romania along with daughter Pooja to do a recce for their upcoming film, but since the makers were not happy with the locations there, they decided to shoot portions in Mumbai itself, Pooja explained in her tweet,”Infactual! România is a stunningly beautiful country. We were very ‘happy’ with the locations but logistics & emotional IQ of local crew are key factors in determining a location for a film. Eventually no one is bigger than a film & the film demanded we shoot only in India.” (sic)
Earlier, reports had suggested that the film will have a reprised version of ‘Tumhe Apna Banane Ki Kasam’ from Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt’s Sadak (1991).
It has now become a trend in Bollywood to recreate songs and use it in recent film. Some do justice to the earlier versions while the others fail to live up to the expectations of the audience. Now, rumours are rife that the film starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt will have a song titled ‘Tumhe Apna Banane Ki Kasam’ from Sanjay and Alia’s sister Pooja’s 1991 film Sadak.
Sadak 2 has been into the buzz for quite a long time now. It had been Mahesh Bhatt’s long cherished dream to make the sequel given the success of the first film. There were rumours doing rounds that the film will see Pooja and Alia Bhatt playing a mother-daughter duo in the film.
Speaking about Sadak 2, Mahesh Bhatt had told a leading tabloid, “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 in the narration. They were visibly moved.”
