Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak, a 1991 film, is still considered among one of the most cult Bollywood films. Now, almost three decades later, the filmmaker is coming with its sequel. What makes it even special is that fact that it stars his darling daughter, Alia Bhatt, alongside Aditya Roy Kapur, Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt. It was in the month of May that Sadak 2 went on floors and is still underway. During her recent interaction at the 21st Jio MAMI Film Festival, Alia Bhatt shared her experience of shooting with daddy dearest.

The Gully Boy actress revealed how she broke down after seeing Mahesh Bhatt cry while shooting for an emotional scene. She stated that the filmmaker prefers sitting near the actors rather than behind the camera and when she was doing an emotional scene, tears came flowing down her eyes. “I didn’t plan to cry but I just started crying. He started crying while I was and I felt him cry and I broke out of the moment for a second and was like ‘That’s my Dad crying, I can’t see him cry’ and I started crying even more!'” said Alia Bhatt.
Upon working with her father for the first time ever, Alia Bhatt said that it is an absolute delight to work with Mahesh because he is extremely clear and has a lot of energy that is eventually passed onto his actors. Alia stated how despite having a high fever, he would never stop.
Sadak 2 releases on July 10, 2020.
