Actor Akshay Kumar is gearing up for the release of his next production venture ‘Oh My God’, that is all set to hit screen this September 28.
‘Oh My God’, starring Paresh Rawal, is based on Paresh Rawal’s Gujarati play ‘Kanji Virrudh Kanji’, that was later made into Hindi as ‘Krishna Vs Kanhaiya’.
Akshay Kumar, who bought the right of the play as soon as he saw it in Hindi, said that he wasn’t making the movie for money but for enjoyment of the audience.
“‘Oh My God’ is not a film which I made to earn money. It's a film which I loved, enjoyed it because I enjoyed the play and what I learnt from the play, I just wanted to share with the audience and that is why I just made this film,” said Akshay Kumar to IANS.
“So there is no expectation from this film, whatever is going to happen. I'm sure people are going to enjoy because it's not a preachy thing. Paresh Rawal is not a baba, he is just having fun in the film and I am having fun, that's it,” he added.
The movie stars Paresh Rawal as an atheist who incurs huge losses when his antique shop is destroyed by an earthquake.
Akshay Kumar said that the movie wouldn’t hurt anyone’s religious sentiments.
“This film has got a 'U' certificate, without cuts. Obviously, the censor board has watched the film very carefully so that it does not hurt anyone's sentiments. This is about a man's belief which we have brought on the screen and it is not like you have to believe or pray in this particular way,” Akshay Kumar concluded.
The movie ‘Oh My God’ is co-produced by Ashvini Yardi, Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. Actress Sonakshi Sinha and choreographer turned director Prabhu Deva feature in the song ‘Go Go Govinda’, which is already a hit among the masses.
Akshay Kumar plays role of Lord Krishna in the movie.
