Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2 is at the center of a controversy, and it hasn’t even released yet. The trailer for the film, his first collaboration with younger daughter Alia Bhatt, was released on Wednesday and has quickly become the most-disliked video on YouTube, less than 24 hours later.
The internet has been roasting Alia Bhatt’s ‘Sadak 2’ trailer since it released on Wednesday. The trailer hit the internet amid the nepotism debate and faced the wrath of angry netizens. In a day, ‘Sadak 2’ trailer has become the most disliked video on YouTube. At the time of writing this, the trailer had 6 million dislikes (and counting) to just 3 lakh likes. However, it has garnered 20 million views.
Apart from Alia, ‘Sadak 2’ is headlined by Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur. Despite an impressive lineup of stars, the internet didn’t seem to have liked it.
“Tribute for SSR. Make this trailer the most disliked trailer in the whole world. I hate nepotism,” read a comment on the video. While another person wrote, “This dislike button proves how much we hate nepotism.”
Mahesh Bhatt’s film Sadak 2 stars his daughters Pooja and Alia Bhatt along with Aditya Roy Kapur, youngest brother for bigwig producer Siddharth Roy Kapur. The film has been drawing ire on social media as a shining instance of Bollywood nepotism, since shortly after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
