“The roads will intersect once again. #Sadak2 in cinemas on 10th July, 2020”, the studio wrote on its official Twitter page.

On 23 May, actor Pooja Bhatt took to Twitter to announce the wrap of the first schedule of Sadak 2. She also shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the sets of the film.

“And it’s a wrap for our first schedule of Sadak2. You know you’re onto something special when you wake up the morning after with a longing to be back on set. Thank you @MaheshNBhatt @duttsanjay @aliaa08 @visheshfilms #JayPatel #AkiNarula & the entire crew for everything & more!”, she wrote on Twitter.

In a report published by Mumbai Mirror, it has been revealed that the plot of Sadak 2 revolves around a protagonist’s fight against a godman. According to Mirror, Alia Bhatt, who is the protagonist in the film, is on a quest to call out and expose a fake godman who runs an ashram. Sanjay Dutt’s character too is helping Alia Bhatt on this journey.

Sources also said that preparation for the shoot has already begun and the actors will start shooting for Sadak 2 in two weeks.

According to the director Mahesh Bhatt, the film is about “love, loss, and redemption”.

He also suggested that the plot of the film isn’t just limited to this and one should not trivialize it like this.

Sadak 2 had been first announced by Alia Bhatt on her father’s 70th birthday. Recently, Alia Bhatt also opened up about working with her father for the first time.

Here’s what she had to say:

It will never be easy as I don’t know him as a director, I know him as a dad. Working with him as a director will be a different ball game altogether. I am excited. It is an exciting film.
