Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely death has kicked off nepotism debate and talks of favouritism in Bollywood like never before.
The cries to boycott "star kids" only amplified on Tuesday when a section of Twitter uninstalled Hotstar streaming app that is all set to premiere the comeback film of director Mahesh Bhatt, Sadak 2. The film, which marks Bhatt's directorial return after two decades.
The movie which stars Alia Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, and Aditya Roy Kapur has been heavily trolled ever since the first look was launched.
On Wednesday, however, Sadak 2 trailer was officially dropped on YouTube and disgruntled fans thronged to dislike the video to voice their displeasure over the movie starring "nepo kids".
Launched only an hour ago on the video-sharing platform, the trailer has already been downvoted more than 300K times as the comments section flooded with comments from raging fans.
The comments ranged from bringing justice to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput to making the Sadak 2 trailer the most "disliked" video on YouTube.
"Guys let's make this trailer the most disliked trailer in History of YouTube. Let's not support nepotism...!!" wrote one commenter.
"I want justice for SSR so I'm going to dislike whole movie..."

"Anybody here just to dislike and didn't watch the trailer?"
"You can dislike and go ..do not increase it's views and do not watch movie at all."
"My finger automatically pressed on dislike button like my finger was being forced to dislike ..."
