Sadak 2 Trailer Crosses 2.5 Million Dislikes on Youtube
Sadak 2 trailer has crossed 2.5 million dislikes on Youtube. This intended boycott dates back to the weeks after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on June 14, allegedly by suicide. The fact that Sadak 2 is directed by Mahesh Bhatt has also contributed to the surge of social media hate.
Since the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, this film was presented on social media as an example of nepotism in Bollywood. At the same time, Riya has been accused by the late actor’s father KK Singh in an FIR including inciting Sushant to commit suicide.
Fans of the late Bollywood actor have been actively campaigning on social media for the past few weeks and urging everyone to boycott ‘Sadak 2’. There were also reactions on social media regarding this.
