Akshay was excited to make Arun as Ram again
Akshay Kumar was very keen to make Arun Govil as Lord Ram in the film. There is no other face more familiar than Arun for the role of Lord Ram. This was a decision that the makers have taken together.
Ramanand was stunned to see the smile
Arun was earlier rejected for the role of Ram. The reason was that Ramanand Sagar did not like his smoking addiction at all. He believed that how could he make a person with such bad habits Ram but Arun assured him that he would give up this habit. Even then, when things did not work out, Arun used his smile in the look test which worked, and Ramanand Sagar was forced to sign him in the role of Ram.
Pankaj Tripathi will be in the center
Apart from Akshay Kumar, 'Oh My God 2' will also feature Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam. While the first film was based on religious fanaticism and superstition, the second episode will be based on the Indian education system. The crew was to leave for Ujjain on October 13 for the shooting of the film. But the shooting has been extended till October 23 after three crew members tested positive for COVID-19.
