Days after the teaser for OMG 2 was released, it was claimed that the Central Board of Certification (CBFC) had placed the film’s release on hold in order to avoid the backlash that occurred during the time of Adipurush. OMG 2 is directed by Amit Rai and stars Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi, and Yami Gautam in the key roles. It will be released in theatres on August 11.
According to sources, the Censor Board not only put the picture on hold, but also sent it to the Revision Committee for a thorough examination as “preventive measures.” Meanwhile, people connected to the project told an entertainment website that there is no problem and that the process is continuing.
Adipurush, directed by Om Raut, was heavily attacked for its pedestrian language when it was released last month. Days later, they declared that the dialogues in the film will be altered, and dialogue writer Manoj Muntashir Shukla extended his “unconditional apology” for hurting people’s emotions.
Prabhas plays Raghav (Ram), Kriti Sanon plays Sita, and Saif Ali Khan plays Lankesh (Ravan). The big-budget multilingual drama was slammed on social media for its weak visual effects and vernacular dialogue, with various political parties calling for the film’s screening to be banned.
In the trailer, Pankaj Tripathi is shown as Kanti Sharan Mudgal, who worships Lord Shiva with zeal, while Akshay Kumar is seen as Lord Shiva, who comes to save Kanti’s family after they face a major tragedy. In the film, Yami Gautam plays the role of a lawyer.
Sunny Deol’s forthcoming action film Gadar 2 will be a major Bollywood fight for OMG 2.
It is the sequel to the Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar film Oh my goodness. Akshay played the role of Lord Krishna in the original film.
