Sadak 2: Aditya Roy Kapur Marks a New Beginning With Director Mahesh Bhatt in New Instagram Post
Sadak 2 is Mahesh Bhatt’s comeback as a director after 20 years. The film stars Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt, Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead roles.
After a gap of 20 years, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt — who directed films like Daddy, Zakhm, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke and Gumraah in the 1990s — is making his comeback as a director. His upcoming film, Sadak 2, features an ensemble star cast that includes his daughters Pooja Bhatt and Alia Bhatt along with actors Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur. Sadak 2 is a sequel to Mahesh’s 1991 directorial Sadak — the story of a young man who falls in love with a prostitute and has to deal with the consequences — which starred Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt. Alia will play Sanjay and Pooja’s daughter’s role in the second part, and the story will focus on the father-daughter relationship. Sadak 2 will also be Pooja Bhatt’s comeback, as she returns to acting after 18 years.
The Sadak 2 team is currently in Ooty, shooting the second schedule of the film, which will last for a couple of weeks and will mostly focuses on scenes with Aditya Roy Kapur and Alia Bhatt, and their love story. A few days ago, Alia shared a photo of Mahesh Bhatt, holding Sadak 2’s clap board, while she expressed her fear of being directed by her father.

Today is Day 1 of Sadak 2. And that's my father, now also my director, holding the clap. I begin shoot in a few days and honestly, I’m petrified. I feel like a tiny mouse trying to climb a beautiful, immense, emotional mountain. I hope I make it to the top and if I fall I hope I’m able to get up again. It’s a tough climb but from everything I’ve seen and everything I’ve heard, I know every single step and misstep will be worth it! Here's to movies, family, dreams and starting out on a brand NEW journey! And what a journey it’s going to be!!!!
Now Aditya Roy Kapur has taken to Instagram to share a picture with Mahesh Bhatt, where both actor and director are twinning in black and seem to be very comfortable with one another. Aditya is seen holding Mahesh’s hand and gazing at him, with the other hand on his heart. He also wrote the caption, ‘A new beginning with the ringmaster @maheshfilm.’
This is the first time the two are working together but Mahesh also wrote the story of 2013 film Aashiqui 2, which starred Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead role and was the actor’s first major success. Sadak 2 is slated for release in July 2020.
