Akshay Kumar starrer ‘OMG 2’ opts for OTT release: Report – Times of India

Akshay Kumar has seen a slew of flops in recent times and looks like the same are affecting his upcoming releases. The theatrical failure of ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Atrangi Re’, ‘Raksha Bandhan’, ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, ‘Ram Setu’ and ‘Selfiee’ have led to the makers of ‘OMG 2’ rethinking their strategy.
Directed by Amit Rai, this film is a spiritual sequel to ‘OMG – Oh My God!’, which released in 2012. Several news portals have reported that the makers have decided to skip a theatrical release of ‘OMG 2’ and the film will directly arrive on an OTT platform. Speculations are rife that Akshay’s rocky ride at the box office may have led to this decision. However, there is no official confirmation about the same. ‘OMG 2’ also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Arun Govil and Yami Gautam in pivotal roles.

Apart from ‘OMG 2’, Akshay also has ‘Soorarai Pottru’ remake, ‘Capsule Gill’, ‘Bade Miyan Chote Miyan’ and ‘Hera Pheri 3’ in the pipeline. The actor has also signed up for Dinesh Vijan’s next action drama titled ‘Sky Force’. Akshay Kumar is also going to mark his debut in Marathi films with Mahesh Manjrekar’s ‘Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat’.
