Weeks ago, when netizens got to know that Mahesh Bhatt’s directorial Sadak 2 is going to release on Disney+ Hotstar, they started a nationwide trend of #BoycottSadak2 on Twitter. Now after today’s announcement that the trailer of Sadak 2 is releasing tomorrow, another trend started to float on Twitter. Twitteratis are tweeting #UninstallHotstar in protest against Sadak 2.
The case of Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput is currently under investigation. Several popular and unpopular personalities are suspected to be involved in the actor’s mysterious death. Mahesh Bhatt is also one of those individuals, that’s the reason why he is getting so much of hatred from the people.
Sadak 2 starcast includes Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Pooja Bhatt and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. As you can see, the lead cast also belongs from a filmy background, the protest against the film becomes very obvious. People are saying on the internet from weeks that, the time has come for the Nepo-kids to leave. Their films will be not supported and neither be watched by anyone of them.
After this #UninstallHotstar trend, we saw a slight decline in the ratings of the app on PlayStore. Disney+ Hotstar has acquired the rights of 7 big Bollywood movies including Sadak 2. They have planned to release all of them on their platform in the coming weeks.
At this moment, Disney+ Hotstar really can’t do anything regarding this protest. Now the decision completely depends on the viewers, whether they want to stay with the app or will proceed and uninstall it. And about Sadak 2, it will definitely release on Hotstar, there’s no going back from here for them.
