Akshay Kumar and Ashwin Varde are finally set for another reunion with their much loved 2012 film, ‘Oh My God’. The makers of ‘Oh My God 2’ starring Akshay Kumar and Pankaj Tripathi in the lead role. Akshay will appear in his God avatar, while Paresh Rawal is replaced by Pankaj Tripathi as the disbeliever.
A source shared that Yami Gautam is eagerly waiting to work with Akshay Kumar on a sequel to a film. “Yami Gautam will play the female lead in Oh My God 2, and she has a very crucial role in the story. While the last part was all about the fight of a man with God, this time around, the makers have come up with a unique storyline that has three key roles to be played by Pankaj Tripathi, Yami Gautam and Akshay Kumar respectively. All details however have been kept under wraps,”
Director Amit Rai has known Akshay Kumar since they were worked together in the film, ‘Padman’. “Akshay has known Amit since Padman days, and he had promised to work with him back then. He has now silently fulfilled his commitment, and is giving a game changing opportunity to Amit. OMG 2 is a big responsibility, however all the stakeholders are being cautious and responsible to take things to the next level with this film,”
The source further revealed, “If they wanted to make OMG 2 just because it’s a brand, there would have been 5 OMG’s by now. But the team was clear to take things very seriously and hence have decided on making OMG only when they were all satisfied with the story. It will be released exactly a decade after the first part,”
