Sharing the poster, Alia said she asked her father and film director Mahesh Bhatt if it would not be better to feature the actors on the poster. She then pulled put a note which was Mahesh’s reasoning behind the featuring only the mountain.
“Mount Kailash, the ageless mountain, has the footprints of gods and sages. It is the abode of god of all gods, Lord Shiva. So do we really need anything else? Or actors in that sacred space? Since the beginning of time, humanity found its shelter in Kailash. This is a place where all search ends. Sadak two is a road to love. This sequel to Sadak will take you on the mother of all love pilgrimages,” she said.
Sadak 2 also stars Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur. It takes off where the original left and will feature a very different kind of ‘villain’ this time. “The story of Ravi (Sanjay) will move forward. He meets these two new people (Alia-Aditya). The film has different love stories and also has (an element of) thrill. The villain is someone very different and totally unexpected,” Alia said.
Working on the film was a homecoming in its true sense, Alia said. “That the whole family is coming to make a film together. That emotion is of another level altogether... I always wanted to be picturised in a song from the Bhatt camp, which has been famous for its music,” she added.
The original followed a taxi driver (Sanjay) trying to rescue the woman he loves (Pooja) from a brothel. It also featured Sadashiv Amrapurkar as the iconic villain Maharani, the brothel owner and actor Soni Razdan, Alia’s mother.
