Now, with over 16 million views, Alia Bhatt's upcoming flick 'Sadak 2's trailer has approximately 94.5% dislike. It has taken over PewDiePie's video, to become the video with the highest dislike ratio.
Mahesh Bhatt's 'Sadak 2' stars his daughters Pooja and Alia Bhatt along with Aditya Roy Kapur, youngest brother for bigwig producer Siddharth Roy Kapur. The film has been drawing ire on social media as a shining instance of Bollywood nepotism, since shortly after Sushant Sing Rajput's death.
Many netizens are also upset over Mahesh Bhatt's alleged links with Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, who has been charged in an FIR by the late actor's father KK Singh, with abetment to suicide among other allegations.
