OMG OH MY GOD! continues to do fantastic business and is now all set to cross the 75 crore mark, hence proving to be a blockbuster at the box-office. Moreover the icing on the cake has been the fantastic word of mouth and audience appreciation that this Umesh Shukla directed film has managed for itself. So much so that many from within and outside the industry feel that if the film would have released a month ago, it could well have been a strong contender as India's nomination for Oscars. How does the man at the hot seat, Akshay Kumar feel about that?
"Well, there have been some fabulous films with great concepts and presentation which have been made. I am happy though if people feel like that about our film. However, every film comes with its own fate," says Akshay.
Despite Akshay as the producer of the film, he didn't try to hog the limelight and was seen in a very minimal role. Guess those who have accused him of ensuring that he gets maximum footage in his films would go quiet now, especially with Paresh receiving all the accolades.
Smiles Akshay, "I do hope he leaves some awards for me. He is a thrilled man for sure. Just how thrilled is something that you have to ask him."
