INDIA: Akshay Kumar’s much-awaited OMG 2 is about to hit theatres in a few months. Previously, the makers dropped the release date and confirmed it as August 11, 2023. Today, the Khiladi actor raised the bar of anticipation and confirmed that the teaser is about to release soon. The second poster from the movie levelled up the hype.
OMG 2 to receive teaser soon
Akshay unveiled the new look on his social media handles. Khiladi Kumar wrote, “बस कुछ दिनों मे (in just a few days). OMG 2 in theatres on August 11. Teaser drops soon.”
The poster showcased Akshay in a Lord Shiva-inspired look, wearing a wig and blue paint on his neck along with the deadlocks. He also had ash smeared on his forehead as he looked up in the sky with an intense look—the traditional beads chain in his neck.
Previously, the lead actress Yami Gautam unveiled Pankaj Tripathi’s look as Kanti Sharan Mudgal; fans praised the new character.
Now, Akshay has also shared a new look featuring Pankaj Tripathi. He wrote, “मिलते हैं सच्चाई की राह पर (see you on the path of truth). OMG2 in theatres on August 11! Teaser drops soon.”
The sequel to the Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar-starrer is written and directed by Amit Rai. Earlier, the last movie created a storm at the box office, and Kumar portrayed the role of Lord Krishna, but now he will be seen as Lord Shiva.
Apart from this, OMG 2 will clash in theatres with Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel’s upcoming sequel film, Gadar 2. Earlier, it was clashing with Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal, but the makers shifted the date to the end of the year.
However, Ayushmann Khurrana and Ananya Panday’s Dream Girl 2 and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan are also the movies that got new release dates, and the old one is now being rescheduled. Dream Girl will now release on August 25, Jawan in September, and Animal in December.
