On Sunday, the film recorded a decent jump in collection, scoring Rs 12.7 crore nett, taking its total to Rs 114.31 crore, reports Sacnilk. The film continues to score big at the box office, despite limited screen count.‘Gadar 2’ has created a rampage at the box office with its mammoth collection of Rs 377 crore, the film is expected to enter the coveted 400 crore mark this week.
Directed by Amit Rai, ‘OMG 2’ is a spiritual sequel to 2012 release ‘OMG – Oh My God’. This film stars Akshay Kumar as Lord Shiva’s messenger while Pankaj Tripathi as a devotee of Lord Shiva, Kanti Sharan Mudgal. He wages a legal case for his son and has to battle it out in court with Yami Gautam. The basic theme of ‘OMG 2’ stresses on the importance of sex education in schools. Because of its subject, the movie faced a lot of hassle in getting a certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification. After a revising committee viewed the movie, ‘OMG 2’ was granted an A certificate.
Reacting to the censor certificate, director Amit Rai had told ETimes, “Do they know what we go through after the script is rejected by multiple producers? Sony, Karan Johar, Ashutosh Gowariker and others had all rejected the script. Finally, Akshay Kumar showed the courage to back it. He was very open to the script and said that the film needs to be made. Because of him we’re still standing strong otherwise ‘OMG 2’ wouldn’t have got made. I met Ashwin Varde, Vipul D Shah, and Rajesh Bahl and through them, I reached Akshay Kumar. If I hadn’t managed to reach him, the script would have remained in some corner. Maybe my kids would have made airplanes from those papers or somebody would have eaten chana in it. After getting an actor and putting in more than Rs 50 crore to make the film, the CBFC says that we can’t show it.”
