Akshay Kumar starrer OMG 2 could get postponed, a new report has claimed. It was reported that Censor Board has ordered 20 cuts and a few changes to the film. The film, which is said to be about sex education, has also been certified as ‘Adults Only.’ The shocking turn of events have allegedly not gone well with the makers. A report has claimed that the makers are planning on delaying the film’s release to fight against the changes ordered. OMG 2 is currently slated to release on August 11.
“The makers are of the opinion of shifting the release date from August 11 as they want to fight against the changes suggested by the committee and also line up proper promotions of the film.” The report comes just a day after a source told Bollywood Hungama that the makers weren’t on board of the suggested changes for the cuts would impact the essence of the film.
“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 sex education should be seen by people of all ages,” the insider said.
Noting that the first film, OMG Oh My God (2012) was popular among children, certifying the ‘kid-friend’ sequel as adults only “doesn’t feel right, in their opinion.” “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 source added.
Akshay Kumar and OMG 2 director Amit Rai are yet to react to the reports. OMG 2, which also stars Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam, features Akshay Kumar as Lord Shiva. OMG 2 is expected to lock horns with Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2.
