The actress said, “I think to myself, ‘Have I managed to get the director-actor relationship with him or is it still that he’s my father?’ I don’t know, I am still confused and I think by the end of the film I will realise what was our director-actor relationship. He is an absolute delight to work with. It is unbelievable how clear he is. His energy transcends all of us. He could be having high fever but he just doesn’t stop. He is so generous with actors.”
When daddy gets emotional

In the actress’ own words, “I was doing an emotional scene and I didn’t plan to cry but I just started crying. He started crying while I was and I felt him cry and I broke out of the moment for a second and was like ‘That’s my Dad crying, I can’t see him cry’ and I started crying even more.”
More about the film, ‘Sadak 2’ is the sequel to Mahesh Bhatt’s 1991 film, Sadak. The original film featured his elder daughter Pooja Bhatt and actor Sanjay Dutt in lead roles. And now, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt will return to the franchise along with new additions: Aditya Roy Kapur and Alia.
