Only a few days ago, actor Akshay Kumar released the new poster of OMG 2 — Oh My God 2 but this time, he did not reunite with Paresh Rawal but he teamed up with Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam. Since Paresh’s character was loved by one and all and fans were hoping to see him in the sequel, some fans were upset with Paresh’s absence from the film. Well, as many suspected it to be his fallout with Akshay may be the reason for him not reprising his role in OMG 2, the Hera Pheri actor now revealed the real reason behind him rejecting the film.
In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, Rawal revealed that he was not impressed with OMG 2’s storyline and the character. He told us, “Mujhe nahi lagi kahani achi, I don’t want to be a part of it. Mere liye koi bhi sequel banana, encash karna, mujhe as a character maza nahi aa raha toh, mene bola mein nahi karunga. Kyu ki jo hum Hera Pheri mein kar chuke the, it was again (enchasing) abhi toh Neeraj (Vora, producer) nahi raha par encash kyu? Ya toh aap sequel banate hai toh Munna Bhai MMBS jaisi banao, ki ek leap late ho, quantum, Lage Raho Munna Bhai jaisi.”
To which, his Hum Do Hamare Do co-star Ratna Pathak Shah added that sequels are very tricky. Even Rawal agreed with her.

May the eternal energy of Adiyogi bless us through this journey. हर हर महादेव”
