OMG 2 actor Aarush Varma can't watch the movie because he's not old enough for mature rating
Aarush Varma is "angry" that he is not able to go to the cinema to watch his latest film.
'OMG 2' actor Aarush Varma can't watch the movie because of its mature rating - and it's making him "angry".
The recently released Indian Hindi-language comedy-drama film about sex education in Indian schools - which is a sequel to 2012's 'OMG – Oh My God!' - was slapped with an A rating.
And because Aarush, who played a school student in the movie, is only 16, he's not old enough to see the flick in the cinema, and the content is actually aimed at his age group.
In an interview with ANI, he said: “I will regret not being able to see my first film in the theatre, I feel a little angry and bad. I just want that if the Central Board of Film Certification takes any decision, then it should be such a decision which will be beneficial for us. Because I want everyone to enjoy the film with my age group friends, and the target audience of this film, for whom it was made, should also be able to understand this film and learn something. Because the vision behind this movie had only one purpose and that was to make India learn that sex education is not something to be learned in secret, it is a matter that can talk openly.”
Aarush has called for areas of the world that do not do so already to start openly teaching sex education, because "misinformation can be very harmful".
He added: “I think sex education is such a thing that everyone should learn because everything has questions. Even a little misinformation can be very harmful. Like my character, Vivek got a little wrong information. So I want that sex education should be taught worldwide in such a way that no one else has to suffer something that causes complete loss. What is period, and what is pregnancy, all these topics are completely natural. It is not even that they are artificial topics, so why talk to them secretly, if you tell them openly, then people will understand, people will ask questions, and only then you will get answers, answers happen only when there is a question, I stole this line from Akshay Kumar. It's a lie but it's true, that's why I wanted to do this film.”
