Sanjay Dutt To Play A Drug Abuse Survivor
Pooja was quoted as saying, "We are making 'Sadak 2' in which we are showing Sanjay Dutt in his true and present time (Sanjay Dutt is Drug Abuse Survivor) so we are dealing with issue of depression in that film but we are making a commercial film."
A Deep Message
She further emphasized, "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."
There Has To Be A Reason To Revisit Sadak
Pooja had earlier told a leading daily, "Sadak is a classic and a favourite of millions of people. If we revisit the film, we need to be sure why. But just being in the same room together takes us back to such a precious time from all of our lives."
Will Alia Bhatt Be A Part Of It?
There were rumors that Alia would play Sanjay's daughter in the film. However, Pooja had laughed it off as mere rumours.
Sadak which released in 1991 starred Sanjay Dutt playing a young man who falls in love with a sex worker (played by Pooja Bhatt) and fights against all odds to be with her.
It would be quite interesting to see how the sequel turns out to be!
