Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film OMG 2, a sequel to the widely loved film OMG- Oh My God, is reportedly set to release on an OTT platform instead in theatres. The producers of the OMG 2 are opting to release it either on Voot or Jio. However, there is no official confirmation of the same.


There are reports that OMG 2 will release on May 26, 2022. Akshay Kumar’s first glimpse in the avatar of Lord Shiva from the satirical comedy-drama film has gone viral. The first looks of the cast, teasers and trailer of OMG 2 will be launched in the second week of April.

Several reports say that the makers have decided to skip a theatrical release because of Akshay’s recent theatrical failures. The 55-year-old actor has had quite a few flops in recent times with films like Bachchan Pandey, Atrangi Re, Raksha Bandhan, Samrat Prithviraj, Ram Setu and Selfiee. This has led the makers and the cast to go for a direct-to-digital release.

As soon as the news went viral on social media, fans suggested that the film should get a theatrical release only, as OMG was a blockbuster and Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal went on to have the biggest blockbuster of 2012. The last film of Akshay that went on to be a blockbuster in theatres was Sooryavanshi, that released in November 2021.

OMG was directed by Umesh Shukla, whereas the sequel is directed by Amit Rai and is bankrolled by Vipul D Shah, Rajesh Bahl and Ashwin Varde. OMG 2 also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Arun Govil and Yami Gautam. The makers do not bring back Paresh Rawal in the sequel.

Akshay Kumar has a number of films in the pipeline. Apart from OMG 2, the Raksha Bandhan actor will be seen in the Soorarai Pottru remake, Capsule Gill, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan and Hera Pheri 3.

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.
