On YouTube, the trailer of Sadak 2 has been disliked for 3.8 million times which is a sky-high number.

Sadak 2 which marks Bhatt’s return to direction after around two decades, has been in the eye of the storm ever since the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Sushant’s demise brought the issue of Bollywood nepotism to the fore, and the film which stars Bhatt’s daughters Alia and Pooja Bhatt along with Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur has been heavily trolled ever since the first look was launched.
On Monday, the hashtag #UninstallHotstar trended on Twitter while many netizens urged people to boycott the Bhatt family’s project. “Nepometer projected 98% person of cast and crew (producers, directors) members of movie #Sadak by Mahesh Bhatt are the products of Nepotism. Nepometer is an initiative by SSR’s Brother in law. #BoycottSadak2 #UninstallHotstar,” tweeted a user.
“They are not getting any platform to launch any movie or shows. So, they choose hotstar to launch it. We are also ready to teach them a lesson. In their own eyes they are superstar now times has been changed. #UninstallHotstar,” wrote another user.
