Alia Bhatt ‘petrified’ to be directed by her father
Alia Bhatt, who recently returned from her vacation in Europe, will finally start shooting for the coveted sequel of the 1991 blockbuster film Sadak.
However, the starlet who is known for going at her projects with beaming confidence is petrified to be directed by her filmmaker father Mahesh Bhatt for the first time in Sadak 2.
Expressing her nervousness, Alia took to Instagram on Saturday to share a photo of the first day of shooting of the film.
She captioned, “Today is Day 1 of Sadak 2. And that’s my father, now also my director, holding the clap. I begin shoot in a few days and honestly, I’m petrified. I feel like a tiny mouse trying to climb a beautiful, immense, emotional mountain. I hope I make it to the top and if I fall I hope I’m able to get up again. It’s a tough climb but from everything I’ve seen and everything I’ve heard, I know every single step and misstep will be worth it! Here’s to movies, family, dreams and starting out on a brand NEW journey! And what a journey it’s going to be!!!! (sic).”
Moreover, the film also stars Aditya Roy Kapur and retains the original cast of Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt.
The film will not only see the sisters Alia and Pooja sharing screen, but also marks Mahesh’s return on the director’s seat after 20 years.
