Sadak 2′ has been drawing ire on social media since Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on June 14. The insider vs outsider debate reignited on social media with Sushan’s death.

Sushant’s brother-in-law had also launched an app named Nepometer to track nepotism in Bollywood. The first film to have been measured in the app was ‘Sadak 2’ and Nepometer found it to be 98% nepotistic.

The film was rated on the basis of five categories – producer, lead artists, supporting artists, director & writer. “Four out of five categories have Bollywood family members,” the team said in an Instagram post. Soon, there was a call to boycott the film.
