Pankaj Tripathi is one of the most versatile, talented, and respected actors in Bollywood. Starting out with a few second roles, he eventually broke into the mainstream with his performance in Gangs of Wasseypur. Since then, he has never looked back and has acted in several commercially successful films. One of his most anticipated films is OMG 2.
Recently, it was revealed that the film has been sent to the Revising Committee. Prasoon Joshi, the CBFC Chairperson, will be watching the film to decide its fate. While the entire team of OMG 2 hasn’t commented on these developments, Pankaj has issued his statement. He talked about it in a recent interview with Zoom TV.
“All I will say is, please don’t believe what is being written about it. Log bahut kuch bol rahe hain. Lekin sachchai samne aayegi jab film release hogi”, he said. This might mean that while the film has been sent to the committee, it doesn’t mean that its bad news for the film.
Adipurush Backlash Has Alerted Everyone
Last month, Om Raut’s mega-budget mythological epic Adipurush was released. Right after its release, the film was criticized by many for its tacky visual effects, absurd dialogues, bad acting, and overall bad screenplay. After an impressive opening, the film fell on its face and turned out to be a box-office disappointment. People accused the makers of tampering with the original Ramayana. The criticism was also directed towards the censor board for passing the film with no cuts. Since then, the CBFC is leaving no stone unturned to be careful about films that have religious themes.
