Two of India’s favourite passions – actor Akshay Kumar and the love of dance – came together recently when superstar Akshay launched the official trailer for his forthcoming new film OMG Oh My God on the finale of the hit show Dance India Dance Lil Masters.
The delighted studio audience cheered, whistled and clapped when Akshay emerged through the screen doors. The timing of the trailer launch couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time, as India had just celebrated the auspicious festival of Janmashtami, and in the film Akshay plays a modern day Lord Krishna.
Akshay laughed, joked and danced with the excited contestants. He even found time to surprise dance hopeful Soumya when he presented her with the holy flute as held by Lord Krishna in the film.
OMG Oh My God, which is based on the hit Gujarati play, is Akshay Kumar and Ashvini Yardi’s maiden venture under the banner of their production company Grazing Goat Pictures and is directed by Umesh Shukla (Dhoondte Reh Jaoge). The film features comedy kingpin Paresh Rawal in the lead role of a beleagured shopkeeper, who doubts the existence of God. Thus enters Akshay in a cameo role as Lord Krishna.
OMG Oh My God releases on 28th September 2012.
