A couple of months ago, news broke in stating Oh My God 2 is in the making with a script yet to be locked. Apart from Akshay Kumar, the film will be featuring Pankaj Tripathi. More details about the film are out now.
Oh My God starring Paresh Rawal was a blockbuster hit when released in 2012. The film was based on unpleasant commercialization in the name of God and religion. Now, after presenting one interesting topic in the first part of the film, the makers are coming back with the second part with yet another intriguing story. It’s learned that the film will be based on the Indian education system.
As per the report in Bollywood Hungama, an insider said, “While the first film was based on religion, Oh My God 2 will be based on the Indian education system. Pankaj Tripathi will be seen playing the main protagonist, while Akshay Kumar will return in his previous role as Lord Krishna.”
When asked about how the two pole-apart roles would be integrated together in a script, the source added, “The story of the film has been crafted in such a way that it will lend itself to the involvement of Akshay’s character, integrating the two seamlessly. The movie will also explore topics such as exam pressures and college admissions.”
The director of the film, Amit Rai has already started the shooting of the film with male lead Pankaj Tripathi. After shooting his solo sequences for a few days, he will be joined by the female lead of the film, Yami Gautam. However, Akshay will be joining the shoot late. He will start his part of the film in October.
Akshay Kumar’s recent release, Bell Bottom, is also decent at the box office. He awaits the release of his much-awaited Sooryavanshi, which has been delayed for infinity.
