OMG 2, directed by Amrit Rai and starring Akshay Kumar and Pankaj Tripathi, is facing potential delays and may not release on its scheduled date of August 11th, 2023.
The film's subject matter revolves around juvenile delinquency, which has already raised several objections from the censor board.
The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has demanded that Akshay Kumar's character, initially portrayed as Lord Shiva, be changed to a doot (messenger) of Lord Shiva.
To comply with the CBFC's demand, the producers will need to either delete or digitally change several sequences where Akshay Kumar is shown with the Blue skin complexion of Lord Shiva.
Implementing the required changes will necessitate extra time and financial resources, adding further hurdles to the film's release.
The current situation suggests that the August 11 release for OMG 2 is highly unlikely.
Despite attempts to reassure the public that there won't be any delays, the challenges posed by the CBFC's demands are substantial.
The film's team may need to find innovative ways to adapt the story and portray Akshay Kumar's character differently.
Fans and audiences will have to wait for an official update regarding the new release date.
The CBFC's demands have significantly affected the film's production schedule and planning.
