Ever since his freedom, Bollywood’s original Rockstar Sanjay Dutt has become pretty choosy about his films. Although the man also wishes to keep the commercial aspect of the film in minds, it seems like he will not sign one until and unless the film intends to inspire the audience in any way, and his latest release, Bhoomi, although may not have done well at the box office, is proof enough that Dutt wants to move in that direction.
Recently, on the occasion of World Mental Health Day, actress and filmmaker Pooja Bhatt was also present at an event to explore a reportedly amazing film known as “The Valley”.
During the event, Pooja also clarified that Sanjay Dutt’s Sadak 2 is pretty much on the cards and will deal with the issue of mental health and depression.
While spilling beans on the same, Pooja said, “We have misconceptions in India that depression is restricted to elite, rich or famous people but it is not like that. It can happen to anyone. If you haven’t felt loneliness in their life then you are not living. It’s not possible for anyone that they never felt lonely at some point in their life.”
Adding to this, she said, “We are making ‘Sadak 2’ in which we are showing Sanjay Dutt in his true and present time (Sanjay Dutt is Drug Abuse Survivor) so we are dealing with issue of depression in that film but we are making a commercial film. We have to make our point but we chose film as our medium because when you choose a mainstream format then your message goes deeper and wider”
The director of the original Sadak was none other than Mahesh Bhatt himself, who showed Sanjay Dutt as a young man who fell in love with a sex worker (played by Pooja Bhatt)
We wonder how the sequel will turn out to be.
On the work front, Dutt is currently busy shooting for Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3!
