Recently, on Sanjay Dutt's birthday, Pooja Bhatt revealed that it was the "belief and absolute conviction" of the 61-year-old actor which ensured the sequel to Sadak. She wrote in a lengthy Instagram post: "... The man who made Sadak 2 happen in the first place - Sanjay Dutt. If it wasn't for his belief and absolute conviction that Sadak had to have a sequel it would never have happened. And it was only him that could convince my father to direct again... Thank you for setting us all off on this life changing journey." Mahesh Bhatt last directed Sanjay Dutt in Kartoos in 1999.
