OMG-2 To Soon Release On OTT Platform

Mumbai: Akshay Kumar starrer OMG 2 will be released directly on OTT platforms as the makers have decided to skip its theatrical release. The theatrical failure of Bachchan Pandey, Atrangi Re, Raksha Bandhan, Samrat Prithviraj, Ram Setu, and Selfie have led the makers to rethink their strategy. Speculations are rife that Akshay’s rocky ride on the box office have led to this decision.

Directed by Amit Rai, OMG 2 is a spiritual sequel to the IMG- Oh My God, which was released in 2012. The film also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Arun Govil, and Yami Gautum in pivotal roles. Sources revealed that Paresh Rawal had to play the lead post in the film just as the first part, but Rawal denied the role.

Earlier in January, Akshay Kumar film Selfie was also announced as its official trailer was launched. Directed by Raj Mehta and produced by Dharma Productions, the film stars Emraan Hashmi in the lead role and Diana Penty and Nushrat Bharuccha in supporting roles.

Apart from OMG 2, Akshay Kumar will soon be seen in the remake of Soorarai Pottry, Capsule Gill, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, and Hera Pheri. The actor has also signed up Dinesh Vijan;s next action drama, ‘ Sky Force’. His debut Marathi film with Mahesh Manjrekar, “Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat’ is also pipelined.
