OMG 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2012 cult hit “Oh My God,” has been making waves in the news lately, but not without its fair share of struggles. The movie, starring the versatile Akshay Kumar, the talented Pankaj Tripathi, and the charismatic Yami Gautam, is a social comedy that promises to deliver a dose of laughter and thought-provoking moments.
In recent weeks, OMG 2 has been making headlines due to issues with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The CBFC asked the moviemakers to make around 20 cuts and changes to the film. But now, after negotiations, the movie has finally received a censor certificate with an ‘A – Adults Only’ rating, with a running time of 2 hours and 36 minutes.
But according to insiders close to the production, the film won’t have any cuts. Instead, some scenes, dialogues, and characters were modified after discussions with the censor board members, and the film’s integrity and essence were preserved.
After facing conflicts with the CBFC for two weeks, the creative team has finally succeeded in getting the film passed without cuts. The release date of OMG 2 remains unchanged, and the makers are gearing up for an aggressive marketing campaign leading up to its release. Today, Akshay shared a video on Instagram which revealed that the trailer will be released tomorrow.
The movie marks the return of director Amit Rai, who helmed the successful “Oh My God” and is determined to recapture the magic of the original with this sequel. The star-studded cast, led by the charismatic Akshay Kumar, the brilliant Pankaj Tripathi, and the captivating Yami Gautam, promises to deliver stellar performances that will leave audiences entertained and engaged.
On the release day, OMG 2 will face competition from “Gadar 2,” featuring the iconic Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, among others. It appears that films with religious themes have faced their share of challenges in the wake of the “Adipurush” controversy. Still, OMG 2 is ready to rise to the occasion and captivate audiences with its unique blend of humour, social commentary, and entertainment.
Fans of the original “Oh My God” are eagerly awaiting this sequel, hoping it will live up to their expectations and once again deliver a powerful message wrapped in laughter and drama. As the countdown to the release begins, the excitement around OMG 2 continues to grow, and fans eagerly anticipate the unveiling of the trailer, which is expected to drop tomorrow.
