The Amit Rai film is slated to release on the scheduled date of August 11, 2023.
Over the past few weeks, OMG 2 has been a hot topic due to its difficulties in receiving certification from the Central Board of Film Certification. The social drama was approved for release after lengthy meetings with government officials. The two-hour and 36-minute Amit Rai film starring Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi, and Yami Gautam has been rated A (adult audience only).
The upcoming film's censorship has been a topic of discussion on social media for the past few days. However, a source told Pinkvilla that the film will remain uncut. The film has been approved after much debate and will not undergo any alterations. A source has also told the entertainment portal that the creators have modified certain scenes, dialogues, and characters after discussion with the censor board members.
This is a huge win for the creative team, who have been fighting a losing struggle with the CBFC for the past two weeks while working on OMG 2. There has been no validity to the rumour that the film's release date has been pushed back. The release date of OMG 2 has been confirmed for August 11, and an intensive advertising campaign has already begun. In two days, the trailer will be released.
It's also reported that the OMG 2 crew initially planned to fight for a U/A certificate but abandoned the notion after the revising committee requested extensive narrative cutbacks. The committee's demands for editing had severely harmed the film's plot in order to earn a U/A rating. The film's creators decided to stick with an A rating to protect the film's integrity from younger audiences. They've taken into account the board's suggestions and are moving forward with an A rating, guaranteeing viewers an unadulterated narrative experience.
The report concluded by saying that the cast and crew of OMG 2, the sequel to the 2012 cult hit OMG: Oh My God, are convinced that the movie will be a financial success when it is released.
