‘Sadak 2’ has become the center of controversy after releasing its trailer. On 12th August 2020 the trailer of ‘Sadak 2’ was released and the video has 7.6 million dislikes as of now with more than 27 million views. This is the first time that filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is collaborating with his youngest daughter Alia Bhatt. The movie is a sequel to ‘Sadak’ which was released in 1991 starring Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt. It was one of the highest-grossing films of that time.
The sequel was much awaited as the announcement was made last year but things have changed since then. Some people are excited whereas a major crowd of the people took it to social media to express their views about the trailer not being impressive and mocking the Bhatt family. A few days before the launch of the trailer, a campaign was initiated to make it the most disliked video after the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput. You can watch the trailer below.
Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide on 14th June 2020. The case is being investigated and has been said to be a provoked suicide. Fans have propagated many conspiracy theories on how the big names of the industry drove him to suicide by neglecting and not accepting him in the industry. People in India are boycotting certain celebrities and Alia Bhatt is on the list as well. Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt received a lot of backlashes saying they shutdown Sushant from their films. Topics of favoritism and nepotism have raised in the industry because of which fans have started out, powering their anger to ban star kids. People with genuine talent do not get work as the industry rotates around the same bunch of families with producers, directors, and other prominent positions among themselves.
Mahesh Bhatt has also received a lot of hate as he is known to be very close with Rhea Chakraborty. Right now, Rhea is the most important person being investigated for Sushant’s case as she was his girlfriend. She has been accused of driving him to suicide and illegally transfer money from his account. Around Rupees, 15 crores was transferred from Sushant’s account which leads to more suspicion.
Last month, Sushant’s movie ‘Dil Bechara’ was released and received 10 million likes on YouTube. Movies starring Star kids are being banned and attacked by Bollywood fans. This will lead to a new revolution in the industry with newcomers getting an opportunity to show their works. It is indeed a bad phase for Bollywood and this grudge is here to stay for a long time. ‘Sadak 2’ will be released on 28th August 2020 and will be available for streaming on Disney Plus Hotstar. The movie stars Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Makarand Deshpande, and Gulshan Grover. For more such updates, stay tuned.
