Akshay Kumar and Ashvini Yardi's Grazing Goat Pictures is all set to start shooting for their first film, OMG (OH MY GOD) in second week of January.
OMG is adapted from the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Gujarati play, 'Kanji Virrudh Kanji' and tells a story of an atheist who incurs huge loses, when his antique shop is destroyed by an earthquake.
OMG is also special as it further strengthens the HERA PHERI jodi of Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. Paresh, who also acted in the original play, wanted to do the adaptation for the big screen and he couldn't think of anyone else than his long term friend Akshay Kumar.

''Kanji Vs Kanji' was an instant hit when released in December 2009 with more than 400 shows. It was then launched in Hindi with title 'Kishen Vs Kaniya''.
A lot of actors and producers were striving to acquire the rights of the play. However, Grazing Goat Pictures were quick to bag the rights.
Grazing Goat is very keen to make films that deal with subjects that are affecting society (a trend followed by Ashivini Yardi in her television career).
