The makers of OMG!! Oh My God, one of 2012’s most successful medium budget films, are ready with a sequel! The first film was based on a Hindi play, while the sequel will have a completely new storyline.
“It will be a different story altogether. It will be a story that will talk about religion and other issues. It will be a spicy film but an eye-opener. However this will be a fresh film and not a continuation from ‘Oh My God’.. We have zeroed on a script but we still have to work on that. We will finalise the things in next three to four days.” says Umesh Shukla, the director of Oh My God.
Will Akshay Kumar have a part to play? “Yes, Akshay will be part of the sequel, in fact he is part of our team. We will have to see Akshay’s dates but it’s too early to think about that. In the first place we have to finalise the script.”
Released in theatres on September 28th 2012, Oh My God produced by Akshay Kumar, Ashvini Yardi and Paresh Rawal, collected more that Rs 70 crores at the domestic box office.
Paresh Rawal, the protagonist of Oh My God, wants the sequel to be as good as Rajkumar Hirani’s Lage Raho Munnabhai
“We have identified one or two ideas but let’s see. We must look at the script. We are not in a hurry to encash the popularity or the success of it. I feel if I have to make a sequel then it should be like Lage Raho Munna Bhai”
