Aarush Varma’s take on OMG 2 getting A certificate

Talking about not being able to see OMG 2 in theatres, Aarush Varma expressed his disappointment. He said, “Acting is my passion and OMG 2 being my first film it has tremendous value to everyone around me, so there was annoyance and a little bit of anger there because the point of making this film was to educate young minds while also enlightening older people, so making it an 18+ film ruins the point of making it. Plus I wanted to watch the film alongside the crew I worked with and also with my friends and family but I can’t even do that so obviously that’s not a great feeling.” Aarush Varma also mentioned that he has started a petition to change certification of OMG 2. He added, “Overall it was a story that was not only educating and illuminating but also hilarious at times. The target audience was definitely kids, teens and even adults but the A certificate restricts those under 18 to watch it, I have started a petition for change of the rating but even if the whole world signs it, in the end it’s the Censor board that makes the decision. All we can hope is that the decision is in our favour.”
