New Delhi: Akshay Kumar's last film 'Joker' didn't do well at the box office, so he didn't leave any stone unturned to promote his latest home production ‘Oh My God’.
The film revolves around Kanji Bhai (Paresh Rawal) who becomes a non-believer when a tornado destroys his antique shop. He starts to question the existence of god but things take a dramatic turn when Lord Krishna (Akshay Kumar) decides to give him a surprise visit.
‘Oh My God’ is based on a popular Gujrati play ‘Kanji Virrudh Kanji’. It is also said to be influenced from Paresh Rawal’s play ‘Krishna vs Kanhaiya’. Prabhudeva and Sonakshi Sinha will also be seen in one song of ‘OMG’.

The promos of the film look interesting and the film is likely to be benefitted from the word of mouth publicity.
Rohit ‘Vats’ of IBNLive is inside the theatre to live tweet the experience of ‘Oh My God’.
