The trailer of Sadak 2, starring Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt was released on YouTube recently, and opened to overwhelmingly negative response. The film has been directed by Alia’s father Mahesh Bhatt, after a long gap in his career.
Since the trailer has been released in between the ongoing investigation of Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case and teh backlash against nepotism, the trailer has fallen prey to all of those sentiments.
Also, the trailer is being criticized for showing Hindu gurus and sadhus in a negative light, which is yet another reason for such negative response.
The trailer of Sadak 2 has received more than 7 million dislikes, against more than 20 million views and 3,75,000 likes. This is an overwhelmingly negative response, and puts the fate of the film in a very scary situation.
The film is gearing up to release directly on OTT, on Disney + Hotstar very soon. It is now to be seen what the fate of the film will be, after so much hate is going around on trailer.
