Akshay Kumar says his next production Oh My God, inspired by Gujarati play Kanji Virrudh Kanji, has not been made with the intention of making money. The project was a result of pure passion for the concept, says the actor.
‘Oh My God is not a film which I made to earn money. It’s a film which I loved, enjoyed it because I enjoyed the play and what I learnt from the play, I just wanted to share with the audience and that is why I just made this film,’ the 45-year-old said here.
‘So there is no expectation from this film, whatever is going to happen. I’m sure people are going to enjoy because it’s not a preachy thing. Paresh Rawal is not a baba, he is just having fun in the film and I am having fun, that’s it,’ he added.
The film, releasing 28 September, is the story of an atheist who incurs huge losses when his antique shop is destroyed by an earthquake.
Akshay says the film does not hurt anyone’s religious sentiments.
‘This film has got a U certificate, without cuts. Obviously, the censor board has watched the film very carefully so that it does not hurt anyone’s sentiments. This is about a man’s belief which we have brought on the screen and it is not like you have to believe or pray in this particular way,’ Akshay said.
Oh My God stars Akshay in the role of Lord Krishna.
