The trailer of ‘Prem Geet 2’ is trending number 1 in Nepal. But, the video has received more dislikes than the likes. At the time of this writing, there are more than 16,000 likes in the video. But, the dislike count is more than 17,000. I did a review of the trailer a while ago (Read the trailer review). I didn’t see anything to be disliked in the video.
The video has received 535k views at the time of this writing. According to the producer, Santosh Sen, somebody might be creating fake dislikes in the video. Because, most of the dislikes in the video has come from countries like Chili, Peru, and USA. He suspected somebody might have spent money to create the dislikes in the video. He told that he is investigating in the issue.
Because of the popularity of YouTube in Nepal and the effect of the songs in the business of movies, there are people who watch the videos just to increase the views count or create fake accounts to increase the like or dislikes in the videos.
The movie ‘Prem Geet 2’ is one of the two sequels of superhit movie ‘Prem Geet’. The movie repeats the lead actor Pradeep Khadka and also features the producer, Santosh Sen, as one of the actors. The movie introduces new actress Aslesha Thakuri in the film industry.

Sunil BK is a new introduction in the movie.
The trailer shows three characters played by Samragyee RL Shah, Aakash Shrestha and Nazir Hussien in Poon Hill.
