Veteran actor Govind Namdev has voiced his discontent over the Central Board of Film Certification’s (CBFC) handling of the recently released film “OMG 2.” The film, which delves into the topic of sex education, has garnered an Adults certificate from the CBFC, accompanied by numerous cuts. Namdev expressed his disappointment on Facebook, questioning the decision to apply rigorous censorship to a progressive film while seemingly overlooking other content.
Namdev stated, “The kind of scrutiny the Censor Board should have directed towards films like ‘Adipurush,’ they seem to have applied it to ‘OMG 2,’ a thoughtful and progressive movie.” He went on to suggest that rectifying this decision by awarding a UA (Universal Adult) certificate would be a wise move, promoting a positive shift in society’s approach to teenagers’ upbringing. The film, directed by Amir Rai and featuring Pankaj Tripathi, Akshay Kumar, and Yami Gautam, carries a message about the importance of imparting sex education to children in schools. The audience’s strong reception in theaters further highlights the film’s impact.
