Saurabh Shukla has strange audience base for him. Some love him. Some hate him. But no one can ignore him. And that is pretty much on the cards in his upcoming film OH MY GOD where he would certainly not be ignored. Reason? There are two of them 1) He plays GOD in the film. 2) He has as many as four roles to enact.
Yes, that's right. In the film OH MY GOD which stars Vinay Pathak as the central protagonist, Saurabh Shukla is seen in four roles. As per sources, he plays the part of a businessman, Maharashtrian 'hawaldar', a 'Sardarji' and a man from the cow belt of UP/Bihar.
The film stars Vinay Pathak as a simple salesman who has big dreams and wants to make it big in life but through ethical ways. As his wife (Divya Dutta) pleads before God to help her husband, HE appears in the aforementioned avtars.
A funny story begins as God tries to help Vinay Pathak become successful but is constantly frustrated as he fails to recognize the opportunities. Promising to be a funny and touching story about a simple man, OH MY GOD is directed by debutant Sourabh Srivasatav. The film also stars Harsh Chhaya, Gaurav Gera and Pubali Sanyal.
In the film, Vinay Pathak is called Rajendra Dubey. Hence, the punch line of OH MY GOD reads 'Bhagwan Deta Par Dubey Nahi Leta'. A Zee Limelight presentation, the film has music by BapiTutul and is looking at a 21st November release. Incidentally, Vinay Pathak's other film as a central protagonist, DASVIDANIYA, is also releasing in the month of November and is arriving on 7th November.
