Alia Bhatt dropped a new picture of herself from a visually striking location along with a thoughtful caption. The actor is looking forward to her upcoming film Sadak 2, which also stars Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Pooja Bhatt.
She captioned the picture, “Keep your face towards the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you.” It shows Alia in an oversize white shrug while posing in front of a swimming pool amid nature.
The actor seems to have taken a silent jibe at trolls who have condemned her film amid the ongoing nepotism debate. The trailer of the film has raked in 12 million views since its release on August 12. Director Mahesh Bhatt, similarly, faced the heat over his June 8 chats with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
Alia had earlier shared something similar on her Instagram stories last month. She captioned, “Silence says a lot more than you think.” While Alia remains tight lipped on the issue, her sister Pooja Bhatt and mother Soni Razdan have been coming forward to share their views on social media. Pooja had mentioned in one of her tweets, “Have been asked to comment on the hot topic Nepotism that people are raging about. As someone who hails from a ‘family’ that has launched more new talent – actors, musicians and technicians than the entire film industry combined, I can only laugh. Facts don’t find takers. Fiction does.”
Alia had recently announced the release of the full music album Sadak 2. There are total eight tracks in the album. The film that marks Mahesh Bhatt’s comeback to direction after 21 years continues from the plot of Sadak that hit the silver screen in 1991 with Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt in the lead.
Actors Jisshu Sengupta, Makarand Deshpande, Priyanka Bose, Mohan Kapur, Gulshan Grover and Akshay Anand also played key roles in the film. Sadak 2 is all set to release on the online video streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar on August 28.
