Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt released the first poster of his comeback directorial feature “Sadak 2”, starring daughters Alia Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt, on social media, and was almost immediately fending against massive trolling and hatred.
Ever since the suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput earlier this month, Bhatt has been has been at the receiving end on social media, like many Bollywood celebrities who accused of promoting nepotism and scuttling the chances of outsiders.
Bhatt released the poster with a caption that stated: “When you come to the end, you discover that there is no END.”
Reacting to his tweet, netizens slammed the filmmaker, holding him responsible for demeaning Sushant’s mental condition and threatening to boycott “Sadak 2”.
“When you put END to someone’s life intentionally, you’ll soon release your END,” wrote another user.
“We are not interested… get lost,” retorted another user.
A user responded by sharing the poster of Sushant Singh Rajput’s upcoming last film “Dil Bechara.” Another user has started a poll asking people to choose between “Sadak 2” and “Dil Bechara”.
“Boycott Sadak 2. Boycott Alia Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt,” wrote a user.
