Sadak was released in 1991 starring Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt as lead characters. The story revolved around a taxi driver (Dutt) falling in love with Pooja (Bhatt) who is stuck in a brothel which is managed by Maharani (Sadashiv Amrapurkar). Dutt tries to rescue Pooja from the brothel and faces the wrath of Maharani. but ultimately, love conquers all! The movie was one of the highest grossing movies of 90’s and had mind blowing music, songs which are still famous and loved by the audience.
With that, there were stunning performances by all the characters especially the antagonist, Maharani which is still remembered and appreciated.
Not only Alia, even Pooja Bhatt shared the information on her Twitter handle. Watch the teaser below.
