OMG 2: A film that faced rejection from Karan Johar, Ashutosh Gowariker before Akshay Kumar backed it
Amit Rai, the director of the film, shared his frustration with ETimes about the ‘Adult’ rating given by the CBFC to the movie. He said that this rating prevented the movie from reaching its intended audience, which were the young people and school children. He also said that the movie had faced many challenges before.
He revealed that the script had faced rejection from producers like Karan Johar and Ashutosh Gowariker before Akshay Kumar decided to support it. Rai said ” Do they know what we go through after the script is rejected by multiple producers? Sony, Karan Johar, Ashutosh Gowariker and others had all rejected the script. Finally, Akshay Kumar showed the courage to back it. He was very open to the script and said that the film needs to be made. Because of him we’re still standing strong otherwise ‘OMG 2’ wouldn’t have got made. I met Ashwin Varde, Vipul D Shah, and Rajesh Bahl and through them, I reached Akshay Kumar. If I hadn’t managed to reach him, the script would have remained in some corner. Maybe my kids would have made airplanes from those papers or somebody would have eaten chana in it.”
OMG 2 is doing well at the box office, as it has collected about Rs 79 crore in a week. The film is likely to cross the 100 crore mark in its second weekend.
