Banned in the UAE, Oh My God is set for a sequel
Director Umesh Shukla, whose debut film “Oh My God” 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 ‘Oh My God’,” he added.
“Oh My God” 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 see Akshay’s dates but it’s too early to think about that. In the first place we have to finalise the script.”
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.
The movie was not released in the UAE due to its subject.
