Alia Bhatt-Starrer Sadak 2’S Poster Launch Has Made Netizens Want To Boycott The Film
Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt released the first poster of his comeback directorial feature Sadak 2, starring daughters Alia Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt, on social media on Monday evening only to receive massive trolling and hatred.
On Monday, netizens’ anger and hatred reflected in the comment section of the filmmaker’s latest post. Reacting to his post, netizens slammed the filmmaker, holding him responsible for demeaning Sushant’s mental condition and threatening to boycott “Sadak 2”. “Guy who declared 26/11 as RSS ki Sazish and his own son helped terrorists to identify the places, tried to declare Sushant as mentally unstable, having a relationship with lady younger than her daughter’s daughter, lowest scum possible…Don’t know why this guy is not in jail,” declared a social media user. While another wrote “When you put END to someone’s life intentionally, you’ll soon release your END,” “We are not interested… get lost,” said another user. A user responded by sharing the poster of Sushant Singh Rajput’s upcoming last film “Dil Bechara.” Another user started a poll asking people to choose between “Sadak 2” and “Dil Bechara”. While Alia also shared the poster on Instagram, she smartly ‘limited’ the comments section.
Sadak 2 is a follow-up of Mahesh Bhatt’s 1991 hit “Sadak” and is produced by his brother Mukesh Bhatt. The film reunites the original film’s lead pair of Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt, and also stars Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur. “Sadak 2” marks Mahesh Bhatt’s return to filmmaking after 20 years.
On Monday afternoon, it was confirmed that the film will be directly releasing to the streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar for an OTT premiere thus letting go on theatrical release for the film.
