After the failure of Joker, Akshay Kumar has taken up
the promotion of Oh My God and he is leaving no stone
unturned to make sure its commercial success. In an interview to
PTI, Akshay Kumar said, "I think yes one can say this. It can be a
marketing gimmick. There is somebody performing a song during Gokul
Ashtami. We requested Prabhu Deva and Sonakshi to do it and they
'Go Go Govinda' is a Janmashtmi number and it is the first item
song of Sonakshi Sinha. This special song features ace
choreographer-director Prabhu Deva with her. Akshay Kumar said,
"There is no dancing and singing behind the trees. The film has
wonderful music. There are meaningful songs."
Oh My God is is a 'divine' comedy based on a Gujarati
play 'Kanji Viruddh Kanji' and it has been directed by Umesh
Shukla. Akshay Kumar said, "I was surprised when I saw the play. I
would want everybody to see the film. It is not a preachy movie. It
is a fun and entertaining film but yet there is a layer in the film
that will hit the audience."
As its his maiden film coming from his new production house Grazing Goat Pictures, Akshay Kumar is very excited about it. Oh My God will see him playing the role of modern-day God, riding a golden bike. Talking about his role, Akki gushed, "My look is kept modern as I have to move with everybody.. have to move with time. When God comes he will not show his identity. He is a normal God wearing normal clothes."
