‘Sadak’ was released in 1991 starring Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt and was a blockbuster. This film was directed by Mahesh Bhatt and marked the debut of his daughter Pooja Bhatt. After much speculation, Mahesh Bhatt and Vishesh Films announced that they are indeed making a sequel of the 1991 film and had said Sadak 2 will deal with the issue of depression. As per reports, apart from Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt, Sadak 2 will also feature a young couple.
During her recent visit to New Delhi, Pooja had spoken about Sadak 2. She said, “Sadak 2 is happening. It’s starting in March 2019 and will release in 2019 but more details of it I should allow my uncle Mukesh Bhatt (to reveal), who is actually the man behind it, who has backed it completely and is making part two a reality. It is his privilege to discuss that and share that.”
Last year, too, Pooja had spoken about the new film, and said, “We are making ‘Sadak 2’ in which we are showing Sanjay Dutt in his true and present time (Sanjay Dutt is a Drug Abuse Survivor), so we are dealing with issue of depression in that film but we are making a commercial film.
“We have to make our point and we chose film as our medium because when you choose a mainstream format then your message goes deeper and wider,” she added. Sadak saw Sanjay playing the character of a young man in love with a sex worker — essayed by Pooja — and fights against all odds to be with her.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter Tuesday to share the news. He wrote: “IT’S OFFICIAL… #Sadak2 to release on 15 Nov 2019… Lead cast and other details will be announced shortly… Produced by Mukesh Bhatt… Mahesh Bhatt in association with Vishesh Films present the film.”
