·1-min read

One must congratulate the brave soul producer Ashwin Varde for doing a sequel to Umesh Shukla’s 2013 film Oh My God a mildly amusing debate on atheism versus religiosity. The film had kicked up an uproar back in the day. Today when religious sentiments are touching sky-high, a film on the subject of, ‘Does God Exist?’ seems fairly suicidal. A member of film’s core team confirmed the sequel saying, “It is not a controversial subject like the first part. It’s a sweet innocuous look at God and his relationship with human beings.” Akshay Kumar returns to playing Lord Krishna while Paresh Rawal is replaced by Pankaj Tripathi as the disbeliever.”

The biggest loss that this sequel would have to come to terms with is the dropping out of Umesh Shukla from the project. Sources the producer were eager to have him on board for the sequel, But Shukla didn’t want to do more of the same. Also read: Paresh Rawal’s 5 Finest Films: Tamanna, Sir, Oh My God And More
