'OMG 2' is gaining immense popularity as the Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi, and Yami Gautam starrer film is steadily approaching the coveted Rs 100 crores nett mark at the domestic box office. Speculations about the movie's budget have been circulating, with rumors suggesting a budget of Rs 150 crores and Akshay Kumar demanding a substantial fee. However, these rumors have been put to rest by the producer of 'OMG 2,' Ajit Andhare, the COO of Viacom18.
Ajit Andhare disclosed that the reports regarding 'OMG 2's budget have been significantly exaggerated. He revealed that Akshay Kumar didn't take any payment for his role in the movie and instead showed remarkable commitment by both acting in and producing the film.
Ajit emphasized that Akshay Kumar's involvement was instrumental in taking such a bold risk, both creatively and financially. Having collaborated with Akshay on projects like 'OMG,' 'Special 26,' and 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha,' the producer highlighted the actor's indispensable role in the movie.
The actual budget of 'OMG 2' has been a topic of debate, with various figures appearing in different sources. While some suggested a budget of Rs 100 crore or Rs 150 crore, it appears that the true figure is quite different. A media portal quoted a source stating that the budget for 'OMG 2' was slightly below Rs 50 crores. Notably, the previous installment, 'OMG', was created with a budget of Rs 25 crores.
Amidst this excitement for Indian cinema, Akshay Kumar expressed his gratitude to fans for their overwhelming support to the Hindi film industry. As both 'OMG 2' and 'Gadar 2,' featuring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel, garnered positive attention at the box office, Akshay took to social media to thank his supporters.
