If the song ‘Tumhe Apne Banane Ki’ means anything to you, then the film Sadak surely holds a sentimental value in your heart. Starring Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt, the 1991 film became a critically acclaimed cult-favourite, if not a hit. However, if you thought the film was done and dusted, think again!
With the working title Sadak 2, the film will see a sequel out soon, which not only stars the original stars but also, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra. According to an Indian publication, the latter two will play a young couple in the film, who may be playing a role linked to Sanjay and Pooja.
“Earlier, there were speculations that Sidharth and Alia are doing Mohit Suri’s next directorial project, Aashiqui 3, but the film has been put on hold,” a source revealed. “Vishesh Films has cast them for Sadak 2. While the film’s director is yet to be finalized, they want to finish the casting process so that the film can go on floors soon.”
Apart from the film being a continuation of the original, Mahesh Bhatt has also confirmed that the film will see a coming-of-age of the newly introduced pair.
“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,” Mahesh Bhatt said. “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 at the narration. They were visibly moved.”
