The Bhatt family took a gamble and released the trailer of Sadak-2 on YouTube but it seems like the Bhatt clan has given the perfect ammunition to the public to show its acrimonious hatred for Mahesh Bhatt.
The public went bonkers on the dislike button of the trailer and made Sadak-2 the most disliked YouTube trailer. At the time of writing, the trailer had whopping 8.7 million dislikes on Fox Movies Hindi channel.
The Ghostbusters movie released in 2016 had previously held the dubious record for being the most disliked trailer ever. It had over 1 million dislikes but it is now ascertained that family’s Sadak-2 will be creating a record of the ‘most disliked’ trailer on YouTube, and it’s a record that will be really hard to beat in the future.
Ghostbusters had at least 300k likes but Alia Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak-2 is crawling was only 186K likes twelve hours after the release, and 3.2 million dislikes. On the 14th of August, the number of dislikes has reached a whopping number of 8.7 million, while the likes stand at just 474K or less than half a million. The the likes to dislike ratio of the trailer is astronomical and speaks volumes about the anger of the public.
And its not only the public’s hatred for Mahesh Bhatt for his behavior over the death of Sushant Singh Rajput or his alleged role in it. The trailer even through a neutral lens looks like a hard pass. for its sheer inanity.
The Hinduphobic content in the shallow trailer has further dented its chances of finding any takers in the country. Sumit Kandel, a seasoned film critic lashed at Mahesh Bhatt for his next venture and explained the reason for its fall.
Things which are going terribly against #Sadak2Trailer –
1- It’s a Very Bad & Weak Trailer
2- Public anger against Mahesh bhatt .
3- Film’s Hinduphobic content.
It cant get worst than this for #Sadak2

Alia Bhatt, the daughter of Mahesh Bhatt, is bearing the brunt for her father’s misdoings. Alia Bhatt had to close the comments section on her social media platforms as the public continued slamming her father Mahesh Bhatt, even in Alia Bhatt’s comment section.
It seems like the star kids’ careers are running on borrowed time courtesy the misdoings of their parents and godfathers. Since Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, the torchbearers of nepotism and the infamous Bollywood mafia culture are being called out and routinely taken to the cleaners. First, it was the ilk of Karan Johar, Salman Khan and others then came the family, especially Mahesh Bhatt, who made delusional remarks, one day after Sushant’s death to paint him as a crazy person who used to hear voices. Alia’s father further invited the heat of the public when his scandalous pictures with Rhea Chakraborty went viral.
Records are meant to be broken but it looks like Sadak-2 dedicated to the Bhatt family will carry this record for the foreseeable future unless a Karan Johar movie is around the corner, who also in the aftermath of the death of Sushant Singh Rajput had unfollowed all the star kids on his Instagram profile.
