There was a buzz doing the rounds since over a year that Mahesh Bhatt was planning a sequel to Sadak (1991) with Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt reprising their roles. Reports also suggested that Alia Bhatt would be joining the duo. Latest reports suggest that in all likelihood the film will go on floors early 2019. A trade source was quoted by Midday as saying that the makers were looking forward to shoot the sequel this year but due to Alia’s packed schedule, that didn’t happen.
The source further hinted that although the Khalnayak actor loved the script, he hadn’t signed the dotted line, making things seem obscure still. “Sadak 2 has been written for Sanjay Dutt keeping his earlier character, Ravi, in mind. While Sanju is looking forward to working with Pooja and Bhatt saab again, his remuneration is still under consideration. Once that is finalised, they will announce the film,” the source told the leading tabloid. Speculations also suggest that Pooja is all set to direct the sequel, the following weeks will have the Bhatts take a decision regarding the matter. “Though Mohit Suri is in contention, Bhatt saab is keen that Pooja direct the film. It will be interesting to see her act in, and direct the movie as well,” the source said.
When the tabloid got in touch with Pooja Bhatt, she didn’t reveal much about the probability of her helming Sadak 2. “I can’t say it’s true neither can I say it’s untrue. All I can say right now is that we roll in February, 2019, and it will be a start-to-finish schedule,” she said. Well, we can’t wait for the team to reveal more details on this.
