Akshay Kumar has shared a special message as OMG 2 collected over Rs 79 crore in less than a week. The actor also gave a shout out to Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2, which clashed with OMG 2 at the box office. Sharing a video on Instagram, Akshay Kumar wrote, “A big thank you to our audiences for all the love for #OhMyGadar [OMG 2 and Gadar 2] and giving us the greatest week in Indian Film History.”
In an earlier post, Taran Adarsh also talked about the box office clash between OMG 2 and Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2. He said, “Let’s face it, the clash with Gadar 2 has eroded its [OMG 2] true potential… OMG 2 would have easily collected much, much more, if it hadn’t been released alongside a Tsunami called Gadar 2.” The Sunny Deol film has collected ₹ 261.35 crore within 6 days.

Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for NDTV, wrote “God’s messenger in OMG is embodied by a flamboyant Akshay Kumar. The star’s presence in the film is understandable. It enhances the box-office potential of the venture. But why Kanti Sharan Mudgal would need divine intervention to sort out his and his son’s everyday problems in the real world is never clearly and convincingly established.”
Akshay Kumar will be next seen alongside Tiger Shroff in Bade Miyan Chote Miyan.
