The upcoming film ‘OMG 2’, starring Akshay Kumar, has been at the center of controversy recently. However, the film has finally received its censor certificate from the Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC).
‘A’ Certificate After Deliberation
The CBFC has granted an ‘A’ certificate to ‘OMG 2’, making it Akshay Kumar’s first film in 12 years to receive such a rating. Previously, his film ‘Desi Boyz’ had obtained an ‘A’ certificate as well.
Controversy Surrounding Religious Angle
Due to the film’s religious angle, the Examining Committee (EC) referred it to the Revising Committee (RC). This move was taken to avoid any potential issues, as films like ‘Adipurush’ and ‘Oppenheimer’, which also had religious aspects, faced criticism.
Modifications Instead of Deletions
The RC recommended some cuts and changes for the film to obtain a ‘U/A’ certificate. However, after thorough discussions with the filmmakers, the movie passed without any deletions. Only a few modifications were made to ensure the film’s integrity while adhering to the censor board’s norms.
Release Date and Clash
With the ‘A’ certificate in hand, the film’s makers are gearing up for the marketing campaign. ‘OMG 2’ is scheduled to hit theaters on August 11, where it will face a clash with Sunny Deol-starrer ‘Gadar 2’. Both movies have a massive fan following, and the showdown is highly anticipated.
Despite the controversies, ‘OMG 2’ is set to make its way to the silver screen. The film’s certification brings relief to the filmmakers and excitement among fans as they eagerly await the clash on August 11.
