Aditya Roy Kapur recently shared his experience working with the stellar cast and crew of his two highly-anticipated releases: ‘Kalank’ and ‘Sadak 2’.

In an interview with Mirror, Kapur revealed “I start shooting for ‘Sadak 2’ only next year. I’ve been focused on ‘Kalank’ since the last five-six months. I spent a lot of time with Abhishek (Varman) who’s clear about what he wants from his actors. As prep, there was a lot of reading to do from that era. We’re nearing the end of that journey now. I can’t divulge much because Abhishek is a director who values secrecy.”
Working on a multi-starrer has been a great experience so far, he shared, “I get to observe how each actor works and there are more people on the set to share a joke with (chuckles). Varun (Dhawan) and I were recently on a three-day outdoor and had a lot of fun. Instagram is a world that I don’t understand but Varun knows it well. He’s always posting something and I became his partner-in-crime. Having Madhuri ma’am and Sanjay (Dutt) sir in the film makes things more exciting.”

Discussing ‘Sadak 2’, Kapur said, “‘ Sadak 2’ is a landmark film because (Mahesh) Bhatt Saab is coming back to direction after 20 years. I’ve interacted with him a few times, he has this crazy exuberance and an almost childlike excitement. After having done so many films, he’s still excited to do it all over again. He shares a special relationship with Sanjay sir and will be directing Alia (Bhatt) for the first time, so it’s a special film for many reasons. It’s been a great ride working with Alia on ‘Kalank’, I’m excited to share screen space with her again.”

‘Kalank’ will release on 19th April, 2019. ‘Sadak 2’ is aiming for 15th November, 2019.
