Pankaj Tripathi declined to comment on the censor board’s review of his new movie, OMG 2, with Akshay Kumar, in order to avoid controversy.
In relation to his next movie Oh My God 2, Pankaj Tripathi has cautioned the audience to not trust “what is being written.” Since news broke that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had declined to certify the Akshay Kumar-starring movie, the movie has been drawing notice. According to reports, it was referred to a review committee to steer clear of controversy once it was made public. The new movie is a follow-up to the 2012 film OMG – Oh My God starring Akshay and Paresh Rawal.
Pankaj added that the idea that serious movies are harder to watch is untrue. In the same interview, he claimed that making a lighthearted comedy was equally difficult, if not more so. An actor in a comedy never knows when the audience will start laughing at what he has produced. We might laugh out loud while filming the sequence. However, the audience can disagree.
On August 11, the movie is scheduled to be released in theaters. Oh My God 2 will compete at the movie office with another sequel, Gadar 2 starring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel.
