Amit Rai, who wrote and directed OMG 2, has said in an interview with PTI that when the film has its OTT release, the original uncensored version of the movie will stream. Rai said, "We have decided that we will show the original film (on streaming), a film that the censor never wanted people to see, but... The public has seen the film and given their verdict. If the censor board doesn't understand it, what do we say?"

Commenting on the CBFC’s decision to give the film an A certificate the director said, "We were heartbroken because we made the film for everyone to watch, now that cannot happen. We begged them to give us a U/A certificate (children below 12 years of age can watch a film under parental guidance) but they didn't. We tried to convince them till the very end... But then they walked some distance, we walked some distance. The film has been released with modifications…”

Rai also shared his happiness about the film earning over 100 crores at the box office. The director said, “We are happy people have loved the film. The intent of the film was pure. Nobody wanted to titillate the audience, hence they liked it. We have dealt with it (the story) in a way that doesn't sound vulgar. We talk about the reality but in a sweet and humorous way.”

OMG 2 stars Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam. The film was released theatrically on August 11.
