The Mahesh Bhatt-directed film ‘Sadak 2’ finally saw a release on the digital platform Disney Plus Hotstar on Friday, August 28. Starring the filmmaker’s daughters Alia Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt apart from Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt, and Makarand Deshpande, the film ever since its announcement has been in the limelight. Its trailer was released on August 12 and was trolled by many netizens as it was seen by people as a shining example of Bollywood nepotism — a topic that has become the talk of the town after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on June 14. On August 16, it came to light that the film’s trailer had emerged the third most disliked video in the world and the most disliked YouTube video in India. And now that the film has released, many have shared their views on Twitter and made #ThrilledBySadak one of the top trends on the micro-blogging website. Not only this, but the film has received 1.2 out of 10 ratings on IMDB.
Actress Alia Bhatt before the release of the film shared her reprised version of the song ‘Tum se hi’ and it seemed that the streak of negativity about the film continued with the song as well. On the official YouTube page of Sony Music, which has the music rights of the film, the song has 12k likes and 23k dislikes at the time of publishing this report.

The only reason I’m thrilled is to see them coming on the sadak and to see it as the biggest flop of the year. Cant wait to see this movie getting a rating of zero because that is what it deserves. pic.twitter.com/kRuqFHNNDW

This film does not only have alia bhatt or aditya roy kapoor in it. It also has the hardwork of the crew in it. When we boycott a film the crew gets more affected as compared to the main lead. Lets not be unfair to them. #ThrilledForSadak2 pic.twitter.com/HI69M3T1Xx
