I thought b’days were about receiving presents Pops & there you go and turn that on it's head by giving us a gift instead-the gift of Sadak 2 and the privilege of being directed by you. Shukriya!"
Mahesh Bhatt and Vishesh Films are presenting Sadak 2, which is produced by Mukesh Bhatt. Earlier, Pooja Bhatt, who had starred in the original film with Sanjay Dutt, had said Sadak 2 will deal with the issue of depression.
Earlier, Pooja had spoken about the new film, and said, "We are making 'Sadak 2' in which we are showing Sanjay Dutt in his true and present time (Sanjay Dutt is a Drug Abuse Survivor), so we are dealing with issue of depression in that film but we are making a commercial film. We have to make our point and we chose film as our medium because when you choose a mainstream format then your message goes deeper and wider," she added.
Sadak saw Sanjay playing the character of a young man in love with a sex worker - essayed by Pooja - and fights against all odds to be with her.
Well, it was Sanjay Dutt who initiated Sadak 2. Pooja Bhatt revealed, "He was the one who came to me and said 'why were we not making Sadak 2?'... On his request, I went to tell them (Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt) about Sanjay Dutt's urge and desire to work in this film... They have a connection which I don't think anybody has..."
