MUMBAI: Actor Akshay Anand had been directed by Mahesh Bhatt back in 1998 in the film "Zakhm". After 1999's "Kartoos", Bhatt gave up the responsibilities of a director. Now he's back in the director's chair for the upcoming "Sadak 2", and Anand, who is collaborating with him again, couldn't be more thrilled about it.
"It's been an exquisite film to work on because the last film that I did with him was 'Zakhm'. Soon he retired (as a director) and he has now come to direct. Doing that film ('Sadak 2') with him, for me, was sort of a cherished moment," Akshay said.
Asked if he noticed any changes in him as a director, Akshay said: "Yes, he has matured plenty. he's so richly and deeply oozing with value for all times. He wants to offer it to tons of individuals through his films and dialogues, and through the ideas that he has in his mind. 'Sadak 2' may be a very different type of film. It's been made beautifully. you'll definitely get to see a unique kind of Bhatt Sahab," promised the actor.
Akshay also shared some information about the role he's playing in the upcoming film, which stars Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur.
"I am playing Sanjay Dutt's friend. I'm one among those people that convinces him to live life for a reason. He listens to me. It's a crucial role although it is a cameo. It's just like the role I did in 'Ghulam'. it had been a small role but the character lives on through the film," he said.
Akshay is currently seen in Sony Entertainment Television's show "Ek Duje Ke Vaaste 2", in which he plays a father.
