Mahesh Bhatt is all set to return to direction with Sadak 2 and we’re excited for more reasons than one! Now, while the sequel already has fans rooting for the comeback of the original jodi of Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt, the fact that Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur have hopped onboard is making us hoot louder. Yes, we had seen the announcement coming with the cast meeting up at Vishehsh films but honestly, the timing couldn’t have been better. Especially with Daddy Bhatt’s birthday and Alia’s adorable post which read: “On your 70th Birthday you have given me the greatest present I could ask and dream for. You are directing me! Sadak 2 is a dream come true.” Also read: Alia Bhatt wishes daddy Mahesh Bhatt on his 70th birthday and in return gets the ‘biggest present’ Sadak 2 – watch video
BUT, cause there is almost always one, did you know that Sidharth Malhotra was the first choice to play the character that will now be essayed by the charming Aditya?

It was after that, that the actor had to bid goodbye to the Bhatt project. Now, while the duo never went on to admit their relationship and the break-up in the aftermath, there’s never smoke without fire. Right?
