Report of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘OMG 2’ opts for OTT release
Akshay Kumar’s recent films such as Bachchan Pandey, Atrangi Re, Raksha Bandhan, Samrat Prithviraj, Ram Setu and Selfie have not performed as well as expected at the box office. However, it’s important to note that box office performance is just one aspect of his film’s success, and other factors may be in play.
Furthermore, it is also important to recognize that Akshay Kumar has had a long and successful career in Bollywood and has delivered many successful films in the past. His recent movie performance may have influenced his OMG 2 release strategy, but it’s too early to draw any conclusions about his career future based on a few setbacks.
Several news portals have reported that the makers of ‘OMG 2’ have decided to release the film directly on an OTT platform, and speculations are rife that Akshay Kumar’s recent box office failures may have led to this decision. However, there has been no official confirmation about the release strategy of the film. It is also worth noting that releasing a film directly on an OTT platform has become a popular option in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and many filmmakers have chosen this route to reach a wider audience.
‘OMG 2’ is a spiritual sequel to ‘OMG – Oh My God!’, which was a critical and commercial success when it released in 2012. The film also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Arun Govil, and Yami Gautam in pivotal roles, and is directed by Amit Rai. While the release strategy of the film remains unclear, fans of the original film and of Akshay Kumar will be eagerly waiting for its release.
Akshay Kumar had several projects in the pipeline, including the remake of the Tamil film ‘Soorarai Pottru’, the action-comedy ‘Bachchan Pandey’, and ‘Bell Bottom’, a spy thriller set in the 1980s. He was also reported to be working on ‘Atrangi Re’, co-starring Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush, which is being directed by Aanand L Rai.
