The teaser of Akshay Kumar's upcoming film OMG 2 has landed into trouble over a scene featuring rudrabhishek of Lord Shiva with railway water. In the said scene, Lord Shiva, played by Akshay Kumar, is seen anointed with the water coming from the railway.
According to several media reports, the Censor Board of Film Certification (CFBC) has refused to give the certificate to release the film. At present, the film has reportedly been sent to the review committee as a form of 'preemptive measures.' Meanwhile, sources close to the film told an entertainment portal that there is no issue and the process is on.
The teaser of OMG 2 was officially released by the makers on July 11. It gives a glimpse of Akshay and Pankaj Tripathi's characters. While Akshay is seen playing Lord Shankar, Pankaj is seen essaying the role of a supreme Lord Shiva devotee.
Soon after the teaser was shared, several social media users slammed the makers for the scene and said that their sentiments have been hurt by the same.
