Soon after Alia Bhatt announced the release date of upcoming film Sadak 2, her sister Pooja Bhatt (also Alia's co-star in the movie) Instagrammed a note their father Mahesh Bhatt shared with her about the movie. Mahesh Bhatt, who last directed Kartoos in 1999, returned to the director's chair after almost two decades with Sadak 2. In the note, he addressed Pooja as "My Gladiator" and wrote: "Today as we begin the last leg of our journey, I feel unshackled... If the film works, it belongs to all of you. If it does not, it's mine. That's the duty and also the privilege of the director. You all gave me so much love and support for which I am very grateful. I love this film because each one of you made this possible." Sadak 2 also stars Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur.
Pooja shared several films from different shooting locations of Sadak 2 and one old picture of herself with her father.
Here's the post:
Note from my father- Pooja my Gladiator . " Hum taxi driver yeh kehtey hai ke safar shuru honey se pehley hum safar ke malik hotey hai magar jab safar shuru hotaa hai to safar hi malik hotaa hai." Today as we begin the last leg of our journey.I feel unshackled! I carry no burden, no weight. No reputation to hold on to. No mission to accomplish. Nothing to prove to anyone. If the film works it belongs to all of you. If it does not, it's mine.That's the duty and also the privilege of the Director . You all gave me so much love and support for which I am very grateful. I love this film because each one of you made this possible. Ahh now I feel like a free bird. My wilderness is calling me. Saying "Mahesh chalein? " #Sadak2 #sadak2diaries #visheshfilms #
