In a race against time, the much-anticipated social comedy, OMG 2 (Oh My God 2), starring Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi, and Yami Gautam, faces a challenging hurdle just 18 days ahead of its scheduled release. The film, centered around the bold subject of sex education, is yet to receive the crucial censor clearance from the Indian censor board. Despite hopes for approval from the revising committee, the producers are still in a state of uncertainty.
Sources close to the development reveal that the OMG 2 team has a trailer ready for launch on July 27, which they plan to attach to the prints of the highly anticipated “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani.” However, without the film and trailer’s clearance, their marketing campaign is at a standstill. The censor board deems the content of OMG 2 to be slightly controversial for contemporary times, adding to the team’s anxiety.
With time running out, the team is eagerly hoping for a green light from the CBFC within the next two days. A 10-day marketing campaign is crucial for the film’s success, making the wait agonizing for all involved. Akshay Kumar, known for his resourcefulness, is actively utilizing his connections to expedite the clearance process.
The team’s contingency plan is to launch the trailer on July 31 if the initial date is missed. Fans and enthusiasts alike are on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting the censor board’s decision. As the clock ticks down, all eyes are on the board’s functioning over the next three days. Will OMG 2 overcome this hurdle and successfully hit the theaters as planned? The suspense is palpable, adding an extra layer of excitement to the film’s impending release.
