OMG 2 Vs Gadar 2 was an interesting clash at the box office in last August

As said above, despite facing a Mass storm like Gadar 2, OMG 2 was able to collect 150Cr Net in India. Gadar 2 collected 525Cr Net, which was an all-time record. Director Amit Rai opened about this clash and said that his movie had received extraordinary reviews, it would have done numbers like Gadar 2 if the censor board had given a U/A certificate.

Directo Amit Rai says the Censor Board killed his film

“The year set a record for Hindi cinema in terms of footfalls, I believe. And I feel if my film did not have the A-certificate, this record would have been even bigger. I don’t know how much this film could have done. Perhaps if it was not an A-certificate film, it would have competed with Gadar 2 at the box office, generating revenue because it would have brought the families to the theaters. The censor board killed half of my family audience when they gave it the A-rating. The censor board hurt me financially too and in terms of content as well. However, those are past times” said Amit Rai.

OMG 2 was received so well by audiences upon its theatrical release. Definitely, as the director said, there was a big impact of the A certificate on the audiences. OMG 2 also had a terrific reception at the OTT stage.

The film focuses on sex education among young people, by highlighting the prevalent misinformation to the students. Akshay Kumar plays a messenger of Lord Shiva, while Pankaj Tripathi plays a devotee of Lord Shiva named Kanti Sharan Mudgal, and Yami Gautam plays a lawyer role.

In the first part, Akshay Kumar appeared as Lord Krishna, and in the sequel, he played Lord Shiva. However, due to objections and controversy regarding the subject, the character was changed to a messenger of Lord Shiva.
