It seems that Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2 has to suffer after the Adipurush controversy. The release of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming sequel film named as OMG 2 has been put on hold by the Censor Board, following the controversy surrounding the recently released film Adipurush. Adipurush, which stars Prabhas and Kriti Sanon, was criticized for its portrayal of Hindu gods and goddesses. The film’s director, Om Raut, was accused of distorting religious texts and offending Hindu sensibilities.
In light of the controversy, the Censor Board has decided to take a closer look at OMG 2, which also deals with religious themes. The film stars Akshay Kumar as Lord Shiva and Pankaj Tripathi as a devout devotee. The Censor Board is reportedly concerned about the potential for OMG 2 to stir up similar controversy. As a result, the film has been sent to the Revision Committee for further review. It is unclear when OMG 2 will be released. The film was originally scheduled to hit theaters on August 11, but it is now possible that the release date will be pushed back.
Akshay Kumar and OMG 2 director Amit Rai have not commented on the Censor Board’s decision. However, it is likely that they will be working closely with the Revision Committee to ensure that the film is released in a way that is respectful of religious beliefs. The controversy surrounding OMG 2 is a reminder of the sensitivity surrounding religious themes in India. It is also a reminder of the power of the Censor Board to influence the content of films that are released in the country.
Only time will tell whether OMG 2 will be able to overcome the controversy and be released to the public. However, the film’s current situation is a clear indication of the challenges that filmmakers face when dealing with religious themes in India. Stay tuned!
