Akshay Kumar’s OMG! Oh My God sequel will be unlike the original

The film’s lead actor Paresh Rawal and director Umesh Shukla say the team is looking for a fresh story for the new version

Director Umesh Shukla, whose debut film OMG! Oh My God sequel earned rave reviews, says they have almost finalised the script of the sequel, which will have a completely fresh story.“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,” said Shukla.

“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 OMG,” he added.

The first part was co-produced by Ashvini Yardi, Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal, with the two actors playing prominent roles in the film. Asked if Akshay will be part of the new project too, Shukla said, “Yes, Akshay will be part of the sequel. In fact, he is part of our team. We will have to check Akshay’s dates but it’s too early to think about that. We have to finalise the script first.”

Paresh too is in no hurry to encash on the success of the film. “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,” said the veteran actor.
