For context, the directorial work of Amit Rai, ‘OMG 2’, received an ‘A – Adults Only’ certification from the CBFC and was directed to make 27 modifications before its release. A primary point of contention regarding the satirical comedy-drama was the portrayal of Lord Shiva, initially depicted by Akshay Kumar. However, the character has been reframed as a devotee and messenger of God in the revised version. Notably, this marks Akshay Kumar’s first film in over a decade to obtain an adults-only rating.
Set to release on August 11, ‘OMG 2’ features a cast including Yami Gautam, Pankaj Tripathi, and Arun Govil of “Ramayan” fame. This film serves as the sequel to the 2012 hit ‘OMG- Oh My God!’.
