Mahesh Bhatt’s last film as a director was 1999 release Kartoos which starred Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala. After more than two decades, the filmmaker is now all set to make his comeback as a director with the film Sadak 2.

The movie stars his two daughters, Pooja Bhatt and Alia Bhatt, along with Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur. Well, Sadak 2 was slated to hit the screens on 10th July 2020. But that won’t happen as the film will now release on the OTT platform, Disney+ Hotstar.

Recently, while talking to PTI about Sadak 2 getting a direct-to-digital release, producer Mukesh Bhatt said, “It (number of COVID-19 cases) is increasing day-by-day instead of subsiding. In this situation do you think the theatres will open? And even if they do and Sadak 2 is released, will people go to watch it? People have to protect their families. Today, life is more important.”

“I am compelled to come (on the digital platform) because I don’t see any light in the near future. This is the best I can do to survive. There are certain things that you do, not out of choice but out of compulsion. This is the only option left. It is a no-brainer,” the filmmaker added.
