OMG 2 holds an A certificate

Actor Govind Namdev, who plays pujari in OMG 2, wrote in a Facebook post, “Jo dimaag censor board ko Adipurush jaisi behuda film mein lagana chahiye tha wo unhone ‘Oh My God” jaisi thoughtful aur progressive film ko kaatne kootne mein kharch kar diya! Waah (CBFC should've applied some brain while assessing a pathetic film like Adipurush. But instead, they diverted all their brains in chopping a thoughtful and progressive film like OMG 2)."
Written and directed by Amit Rai, OMG 2 features Pankaj Tripathi as a devotee of Lord Shiva named Kanti Sharan Mudgal and Yami as a lawyer. Akshay plays messenger of Lord Shiva in the film. It has been produced by Cape of Good Films and Wakaoo Films. Wakaoo Films had tweeted on Wednesday, “Aapka pyaar hee hamara puraskaar hai (your love is our reward).”
