Mumbai, Sep 20: On the special occasion of Mahesh Bhatt’s 70th birthday today, daughter and actor Alia Bhatt dropped the teaser of Sadak 2, which marks the veteran filmmaker’s return to direction after 19 years.
A sequel to his 1991 superhit film Sadak, the romantic thriller will star Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles.

In the last few seconds of the video, it is Alia who is sweetly humming in the background. The actress, who has six songs to her credit as a vocalist, has apparently sung the song Hum Tere Bin Kahin Reh Nahin Paate that featured in the prequel. It is on this tune that she is seemingly humming.

Sharing an image of him with an owl, she wrote, “Dear Daddy, on your 70th Birthday you have given me the greatest present I could ask and dream for. You are directing me! Sadak 2 is a dream come true. What I thought will never be possible you have made possible. Thank you daddy from the bottom of my heart, soul and bones. This will be a journey of discovery. Of life, movies, feeling and most of all. Of a father and daughter. I love you my not-so-old man! Happy Birthday.”
For the first time, the ‘Raazi’ star will be directed by her father in the remake of his 1991 blockbuster movie, ‘Sadak’ which starred Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Deepak Tijori, and Neelima Azeem.
The film saw Sanjay playing the character of a young man who falls in love with a prostitute (essayed by Pooja) and bails her out of the clutches of a transgender pimp-lord Maharani played by late veteran actor Sadashiv Amrapurkar in an iconic negative role.
