Further, the producer shared that they both share a very good understanding and history as a studio since OMG, Special 26, and Tiolet: Ek Prem Katha. He said, “I have been totally in lockstep with him in taking up script that are unconventional but stand for something larger & meaningful. Without him this risk was impossible to take, he was fully invested both creatively & financially.”

And the reports state that the budget of OMG 2 is made little under Rs 50 crore and shot in a controlled environment much like most of the social dramedies made in Bollywood. In fact, part 1 OMG’s budget was controlled under Rs 25 crore.

The 'OMG 2’ storyline talks about an unhappy civilian who asks the court to mandate comprehensive education in schools in a dramatic yet amusing courtroom play based on sex education and masturbation topics. Due to this, the film faced 24 scene cuts from the film and got an adult-only certificate from the censor board. Despite such consequences, the movie is doing great on the silver screen and the audience are appreciating the makers for showcasing an essential concept.
