Directed by Amit Rai, the film follows the story of a middle-class father advocating for crucial sex education while debunking prevalent misconceptions. The satirical comedy received widespread acclaim from both critics and audiences.
Expressing his excitement about the OTT release, Akshay Kumar remarked, “We are thrilled by the enthusiastic reception OMG 2 has received in theatres! This story deserves to travel far and beyond borders and we are confident that with Netflix we will be able to take the film to entertainment lovers worldwide.
