The highly-anticipated Bollywood movie Sadak 2 will premiere on an OTT platform. The film, which marks Mahesh Bhatt’s comeback as a director after 21 years, will stream on Disney Plus Hotstar. The release date of Sadak 2 is yet to be announced.
A sequel of the 1991 hit romantic-thriller Sadak, Sadark 2 stars Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Jishu Sengupta and Gulshan Grover. The movie also features Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt, who were part of the original film.
Speaking about being a part of Sadak 2 and working with her father Mahesh Bhatt for the first time, Alia Bhatt, who was part of Disney Plus Hotstar’s virtual press conference on Monday, said, “The journey of Sadak began with three people – Mahesh Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt. Aditya (Roy Kapur) and I are newbies in this Sadak universe. This film is way more than a film for me because this is homecoming in its true sense. The entire family has got together to make this film and hence the emotions were at a different level all together.”
A love story that began 29 yrs ago now journeys towards a new horizon. Sadak2 – The road to love ❤️

She added, “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. Also, 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.”
Sharing why the team chose a picturesque click for the poster instead of the actors, Alia Bhatt said, “When we had the conversation about our first communication, this is what my father said, ‘I want the road, and I want Kailash mountain at the end of the road.’ Kailash has a significance in our film. When I asked him what am I supposed to tell people if they ask me where the film’s characters are, he told me to say this – ‘Mount Kailash, the ageless mountain has the footprints of gods and sages. It is the abode of the 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 the place where all search ends. Sadak 2 is the road to love. The sequel of Sadak will take you on the mother of all love pilgrimages.'”
Other mainstream Bollywood movies that have skipped the theatrical route to release directly on Disney Plus Hotstar are Laxmmi Bomb, Bhuj: The Pride of India, The Big Bull, Khuda Haafiz and Lootcase. Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film Dil Bechara will also release on the streaming platform on July 24.
