OMG 2 will stream on Netflix
OMG’s OTT platform was confirmed earlier in the day. The movie, starring Akshay Kumar in the lead role, will release on Netflix. Before its release, director Amit Rai has spoken up on the movie being censored despite the OTT release. He criticized the board and asked if it was okay for kids to watch the many kissing scenes in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani, featuring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles.
What Amit said
During his conversation with Hindustan Times, Amit spoke about the film releasing its censored version on OTT. He said that the OTT platform, Netflix, is not ready to show the uncensored version. “Saare desh ne chilla chilla ke bola par phir bhi Censor Board ko sunaayi nahin de raha, toh koi kuch nahin kar sakta (the whole country spoke against the Censor Board but they couldn’t hear it and so, there’s no other option),” he said.
The uncut scenes
Various scenes were cut in OMG 2 because they had references to bold content and individual pleasure. A scene raising awareness on the importance of protection, too, was deleted. In total, 27 such scenes were cut by the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification).
Amit questions how Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani, Gadar 2 got away with it
In his interview, Amit spoke about a similar advertisement in Gadar 2. The ad was not banned from preview in theatres. He also pointed out how Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani had many kissing scenes but they were not censored. “Was it okay for the kids to watch that?,” he asked.
OMG 2 featured Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal in the lead roles. The film is about a father who moves court after his son is shamed for act of individual pleasure.
