Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely passing has commenced nepotism discussions in Bollywood more than ever.
The cries to blacklist “star kids” possibly intensified on Tuesday when a section of Twitter uninstalled Hotstar streaming application that is all set to debut the movie of director Mahesh Bhatt, Sadak 2. The movie stars Alia Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, and Aditya Roy Kapur.
On Wednesday, however, Sadak 2 trailer was formally dropped on YouTube and disappointed fans crowded to despise the video to voice their dismay over the film featuring “nepo kids”.
Launched a few hours back on the video-sharing stage, the trailer has just been downvoted more than 300K occasions as the comment segment overflowed with remarks from seething fans.
“Guys let’s make this trailer the most disliked trailer in History of YouTube. Let’s not support nepotism…!!” wrote one commenter.
“I want justice for SSR so I’m going to dislike the whole movie…”
“I only here to dislike this trailer, (sic).”
Earlier, hashtag #UninstallHotstar trended on Twitter while many netizens urged people to boycott the Bhatt family’s project.
We want to give Clear message to hotstar Netflix and movie sponsors if you will promote give business to Bollywood mafiya and Nepotism Franchises , we will not support you we will boycott you .
