Sadak 2 to be released on Disney+Hotstar, Mukesh Bhatt calls it ‘Compulsion’
In July, Sadak 2 helmed by Mahesh Bhatt starring Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt is heading for the OTT release. The indefinite shut down of theatres in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic has forced the makers to go for digital release. Mukesh Bhatt has confirmed, “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.”
The film was originally scheduled to release on July 10 on the big screen. The makers will have to go for the digital release to ‘survive’, reveals the producer. Asserting that both filmmakers and audience will prefer big screen experience and digital release is ‘temporary’, the producer said, “Now that films are releasing on OTT, it doesn’t mean theatres will shut down. People need outing, big screen entertainment is fun. It is a temporary phase. We need to understand it rationally and not blast or put each other down. We should lift each other up. I have got no option, so I will definitely consider OTT. We have not made this film to put it in lock and key. We want to bring it to people so that they enjoy the film.”
Sadak 2 is a sequel to 1991 film Sadak starring Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt.
