Alia Bhatt on working with Mahesh Bhatt in ‘Sadak 2’: I know him as my dad and not as a director
Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and actress Soni Razdan’s daughter Alia Bhatt has taken Bollywood by storm. Over the years, Alia has proved that she is not just a product of nepotism and she is here to stay. Slowly and steadily, she is proving her acting mettle and taking up challenging roles. And that in itself is a commendable thing. For the first time in her career, Alia is all set to work with her renowned filmmaker father as he will be directing her in ‘Sadak 2’. The actress opened up about how working with her father won’t be easy.
Mahesh Bhatt will be returning to direction after almost a two decade long hiatus. He is making the sequel of his 1991 film ‘Sadak’, which starred Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt in lead roles. Interestingly, both Pooja and Sanjay are part of the sequel as well. Alia and Aditya Roy Kapur are the new additions in the sequel.
Talking about how working with her father is going to be a different experience, Alia told PTI, “It will never be easy as I don’t know him as a director, I know him as a dad. Working with him as a director will be a different ball game altogether. I am excited. It is an exciting film. My father is very silent on most of the things. But I still don’t know how he will be on the sets.”
She also revealed that it was Sanjay Dutt who persuaded her father to direct ‘Sadak 2’. It would be a treat to watch Alia and her sister Pooja together in a film being directed by their immensely talented father Mahesh Bhatt. ‘Sadak 2’ is all set to hit the silver screens on March 25, 2020.
