Amid the tense nepotism protest, many Twitter users are calling Indian netizens to uninstall the OTT platform which released Sadak 2. The film involves many members in the Bhatt family.

After the untimely demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, Indian Internet users have shown their strong disapproval of Bollywood nepotism that is believed to drive outsiders as Sushant to the extreme steps. Alia Bhatt also lost a huge number of followers due to this, along with some other star kids as Sonam Kapoor or Sara Ali Khan.

Even when Sushant’s father filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty, the Bhatt family members couldn’t escape the anger from fans. Particularly, when people found that Rhea Chakraborty and Mahesh Bhatt had called each other 16 times one week before Sushant’s death plus the throwback photos of Rhea and Bhatt, fans immediately called for the boycott of Sadak 2.
