As director Mahesh Bhatt makes a comeback with Sadak 2 after a long hiatus of 21 years, rumours of its OTT release has been making news for some time.

The film has Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt, along with Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapoor. When we got in touch with the film’s producer Mukesh Bhatt, he revealed that the film is yet to be completed.

“Everyone has been calling me to ask if we have sold the film to Disney Hotstar. How can we when we have an outdoor schedule of four-five days pending? We’ll complete the shoot as soon as things become normal,” says Bhatt who also reveals that the film is indeed a sequel to the 1991 film.

“It’s a franchise with a big star cast. Would anyone make such a film for a digital platform? So let’s first complete the film and then only we can confirm. We have sold the rights of our film to Fox Studios and music rights to Sony Music,” he adds.

Speaking about the leftover shoot, Bhatt says that until the situation is normal, it won’t be possible to shoot.

“We have to shoot a street scene and will have to engage a crowd. How will that be possible? Also, rains are here so we will have to erect a set to shoot the scene,” he says adding that the climax scene has already been canned. “After that, we will get on with the post-production which again will take time. We have made Sadak 2 for theatrical release though the big question is when the theatres will re-open. We can only wait and watch,” he concludes.
