Speaking about working with her father in Sadak 2, Alia told a publication, “Working with family is amazing. The whole vibe is that of fun and excitement. The character I am playing is both different and difficult. A lot of effort is required. Also, my father is so emotionally charged and high all the time that it is another experience altogether. Initially, I was a little nervous but now I am in the flow, enjoying every bit of the journey and more excited to see this film release. Once the release date nears, I’ll be nervous again.”

Talking about Sadak 2, Mahesh Bhatt had earlier said, “Like the spider gets its thread from his own guts, the narrative of Sadak 2 is pulled out from my lived life. It’s a film about living, loving and dealing with the anguish of the loss of a loved one,” he had said.
