According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, Jisshu is currently filming for the movie in Ooty. The actor was all praise for his on-screen daughter, “Alia’s passion for her craft is commendable. Her heart is in her work and she is amongst the finest actors we have in Indian cinema today.

Earlier Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter Pooja Bhatt had introduced Jisshu Sengupta as part of ‘Sadak 2’ by tweeting, “My father’s special message to @Jisshusengupta which he imprinted in his trademark ‘capital’ scrawl, on the script of #Sadak2 “In the heart of darkness there is light”. Indeed there is 🖤 @MaheshNBhatt (sic).

Jisshu was last seen in ‘Manikarnika’. Sengupta played Kangana Ranaut‘s husband Gangadhar Rao in the film.  In the Mumbai Mirror interview, he had only praises for his co-star whom he called a “phenomenal actor”.

‘Sadak 2’ is the official sequel of Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt starrer Sadak (1991).  It revolved around a young man, who falls in love with a sex worker, and has to overcome the social stigma as well as face the brothel owner and some criminal elements.

‘Sadak 2’ stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Alia Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Anand, Jisshu Sengupta and Priyanka Bose in key roles. Revealing what ‘Sadak 2’ is all about, Mahesh Bhatt had earlier told Mumbai Mirror, “‘Sadak 2′ is about love, loss and redemption. To simplify a heartfelt narrative like this is to falsify it. You would be trivialising the essence of the film by suggesting that ‘Sadak 2’ is just this.
