Reportedly, Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2 has been asked to cut 20 scenes and has been given an ‘Adult’ certificate by the CBFC’s revising committee
It appears that controversy has already dogged Akshay Kumar’s upcoming movie Oh My God 2 even before it has been released. The Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) has been monitoring the Amit Rai-directed movie ever since they released the official trailer. Before the release of OMG 2, CBFC has taken all necessary precautions to prevent a situation similar to that of Adipurush. The film was recently assessed by the CBFC’s Revising Committee (RC), and it is scheduled to open in theaters on August 11.
According to the most recent source, the picture has suffered greatly as a result of the film board’s request for significant changes to the movie. According to reports, its plot centers on sex education and parts of the scenes are found slightly controversial by the board.
According to the latest media report, the film certification board has asked the makers to cut 20 scenes, including the deletion of audio and video. Furthermore, they have given an Adult-only certificate to the film, which has left the makers unhappy and uncomfortable with the changes.
A source close to the development revealed to Bollywood Hungama, “In all, the RC has asked for 20 cuts. These include both visual and audio deletions. On top of it, they have also suggested the makers opt for an adults-only certification. However, the makers are not comfortable with these cuts as they believe that it’ll affect the essence of the film. They are also not okay with an ‘A’ certificate. After all, they feel that the topic of s*x education should be seen by people of all ages. Also, the first part, OMG Oh My God (2012), is very popular with kids. To have an adult certificate for a film in a kid-friendly franchise just doesn’t feel right, in their opinion.”
The source concluded saying, “There’s a deadlock between the two parties as of now. It remains to be seen if they are able to reach a consensus and whether that happens sooner so that OMG Oh My God 2 can release comfortably on August 11, as scheduled.”
The makers of OMG 2 are reportedly trying hard to get the trailer and film cleared from CBFC by this weekend or by Monday in order to avoid any further delays.
