The film reportedly revolves around love, loss, and redemption. Alia’s character will embark on a journey with Sanjay Dutt’s character to expose a fake godman in the film. Apart from the lead, Jisshu Sengupta, Gulshan Grover, Makarand Deshpande, Priyanka Bose, Mohan Kapur, Akshay Anand, and several others have landed significant roles in the film.
During the Disney+ Hotstar ‘Bollywood Ki Home Delivery’ live chat which saw several stars announcing the seven films that would hit the OTT directly, Alia Bhatt had said that Sadak 2 was way more than a film because it was a homecoming in the true sense. “It’s a continuation and not a recreation of the already existing Sadak. Ravi’s journey goes forward, and he meets two new people. Sadak 2 is the road to love and has different love stories. There’s also a thrill to it because Maharani was a very iconic villain of that time. Even this time, the villain is very different. It’ll be totally unexpected.”
She added, “When I was a kid, I used to be so excited about the songs in my father’s films. I would dream about me featuring in his songs. That came true. Today, I can proudly say that I have become a small part of the Bhatt camp’s songs.”
The film was earlier to hit screens in March and was then pushed to July due to the nationwide lockdown. The film will now directly premiere on digital platform Disney+ Hotstar.
Last month, a complaint was filed against the makers and actors of the film for hurting the sentiments of Hindus. Acharya Chandra Kishore Parashar, a resident of Sikandarpur filed the complaint stating that the usage of an image of Kailash Mansarovar in the poster of the movie released recently was purposefully done to hurt their sentiments.
Parashar had filed a complaint under the IPC sections 295A (deliberately outraging religious feelings) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).
