The picture is being shared after the trailer of ‘Sadak 2’ starring Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapoor received a backlash from the public and became one of the most disliked trailers on YouTube. It received over 12 million dislikes. The backlash was due to the uproar that got created after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
