The much awaited teaser of Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2 was released today and became an instant hit. Without giving away much, the makers have managed to draw the audience into the intriguing plot. For the OMG sequel, Akshay Kumar has teamed up with Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam. Released in 2012, OMG features Paresh Rawal. While fans were excited to see Akshay-Pankaj Tripathi’s on-screen chemistry, many were upset by the absence of Paresh Rawal. Several reports suggested that there might be a rift between Hera Pheri’s co-stars. However, in an interview two years ago, Paresh Rawal shared the real reason behind quitting the film.
Paresh Rawal did not like the script of OMG 2
In an interview, Paresh Rawal revealed that neither he liked the plot of OMG 2 nor his character in the film. As the actor was convinced that he would not enjoy playing the character, he turned down the project. “Mujhe nahi lagi kahani achi, I don’t want to be a part of this. Mere liye koi bhi sequel banana, encash karna, mujhe as a character maza nahi aa raha toh, mene bola mein nahi karunga (I didn’t like the storyline and I don’t want to be a part of it. For me, doing any sequel is like cashing in. So not enjoying the character, I refused to be a part of the project), he told Bollywood Bubble.
Paresh Rawal further added that if anyone wants to make a sequel, it should be like Lage Raho Munna Bhai. The actor said, “Jo hum Hera Pheri mein kar chuke (what we did with Hera Pheri) was again (enchasing) abhi toh Neeraj (Vora) nahi raha par encash kyu? Ya toh aap sequel banate hai toh Munna Bhai MMBS jaisi banao, ki ek leap late ho, quantum, Lage Raho Munna Bhai jaisi (If you do sequels, make it like Munna Bhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munna Bhai showing some leap from quantum). ”
The teaser of OMG 2 is out
The teaser of OMG 2, released on Tuesday, July 11, promises a satirical comedy with a social message at the forefront. While Yami Gautam will be donning the role of a lawyer, Pankaj Tripathi will be seen as a staunch devotee of God. OMG 2 is slated to hit the big screens on August 11. It will clash with Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2 at the box office.
