Akshay, who was dressed in black, said, “Kaisi lagi aap logo ko movie? Pehli adult film hai jo teenagers ke liye bani hai. Actually yeh sab schools mein dikhani chahiye, lekin aap sab entertain huye nah? Bahut acha laga, bahut-bahut shukriya aap log aye dekhne (How did you find the film? This is the first adult film that has been made specifically for teenagers. It should be actually shown in schools, but at least you all got entertained watching it. I am very happy you came to watch the film).”

OMG 2's adult certificate

In July it was reported that CBFC had taken 'preemptive measures' to avoid any backlash over Oh My God 2 dialogues or scenes. Recently, OMG 2 was awarded an A certificate after weeks of speculations that the filmmakers wanted a UA certificate – unrestricted but with a parental discretion advisory for children under 12 years

Earlier, reports claimed that the CBFC was being extra cautious while reviewing OMG 2 because of the backlash that Adipurush faced post-release. Om Raut's Adipurush was mired in controversies after it was released in June. The film featuring Prabhas as Raghava, Kriti as Janaki, Sunny Singh as Laxman, and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh, faced criticism over its dialogues, costumes and 'cartoon-like graphics'.
