Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal collaborate again on the Oh My God sequel. The film goes on the floors this Summer. More details
The combo of Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal has treated the audience with few of the most memorable comedies like Hera Pheri, Phir Hera Pheri, Garam Masala, Welcome, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, and Oh My God. Over the last few years, there have been talks of the two reuniting on Hera Pheri 3, however, nothing materialized in that front till date. And now, Pinkvilla has learnt that the duo of Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal is finally set for another reunion with the sequel of their much-loved 2012 social comedy, Oh My God. Part two will be produced by Ashwin Varde along with Akshay himself.
“Akshay, Paresh, Ashwin and the entire gang have been keen to make Oh My God 2 for the longest time and have been brain storming on different ideas to come up with a story that’s better than the first part. And after several years of research and brainstorming, they have finally locked a script that does justice to the legacy of first part,” revealed a source close to the development, adding further that last through the last six months, Akshay himself has been involved developing the script of OMG 2.
“Even as he was shooting for Atrangi Re, he was in constant touch with Ashwin over the script of Oh My God and in-fact the two even met on the set in Delhi to discuss on the pre-production process, other members of the cast and the way forward. The script is locked, and the film is ready to go on the floors as early as summer 2021,” the source added. The director has been kept under wraps for now (stay tuned for more on this), however, according to sources, Umesh Shukla, who helmed part one would not be on board part 2. Like the first part, Akshay will play god even in the sequel and has allotted his shooting dates in the summer holidays. “It’s a fresh story, with a fresh outlook at the things around us,” the source signed off. In-fact, if everything goes as planned, OMG 2 should go on the floors by the end of April.
A formal announcement is on the way soon with director and other members of the ensemble cast. The film has come out as a complete surprise for one and all, as it was all kept under wraps till now. There are two more unannounced Akshay films – one is an action comedy with Ekta Kapoor and other being Jagan Shakti”s next produced by Vashu Bhagnani – both of which are currently in the writing stage.The announcements will happen once the scripts are locked and okaye’d by Akshay.
