The trailer of Sadak 2 starring Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur released on August 12 online. The film is all set to head for a streaming release soon on Disney+ Hotstar considering coronavirus outbreak has still managed to keep the theatres shut. Sadak 2 happens to be a special film on two fronts, one because this is Alia Bhatt’s first collaboration with her father and secondly the film happens to be a Mahesh Bhatt directorial after a hiatus of 21 years. The director in the prime of his career delivered some big hits such as Sadak – the original film, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin , Sir among others. Sadak 2 Trailer: Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur’s Next Looks Like a Worthy Sequel (Watch Video).

While Sadak 2 is finding itself to be a prime target of hatred amid the raging nepotism debate, it seems a tad unfair to write it off way before its release. Considering this film marks Mahesh Bhatt’s return to direction after 1999 film Kartoos starring Sanjay Dutt and Jackie Shroff in lead roles, we decided to take a look at the director’s previous works that resonated with the audiences and received a thumbs-up from them.
