Akshay Kumar, who played Lord Krishna in the 2012 film OMG, which also starred Paresh Rawal, is slated to reprise his Godly persona in the film’s sequel. The actor stated earlier today that he has started filming OMG 2 with co-stars Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam. He also revealed the first look poster, in which he portrays Lord Shiva.

Later in the day, Akshay showed us a video from the set of the movie. He is seen walking along the street with Pankaj Tripathi in the video. Akshay has dreadlocks and is dressed in a multi-colored hoodie and white leggings. Meanwhile, Pankaj, dressed in a checkered shirt and brown slacks and sporting a mustache, resembles the man next door. This is the first time Akshay and Pankaj would be on the same screen together.

Akshay said earlier today while posting the first look poster of his character, “Need your blessings and wishes for #OMG2, our honest and humble attempt to reflect on an important social issue. May the eternal energy of Adiyogi bless us through this journey.”

Amit Rai wrote and directed OMG 2 with Cape of Good Films, Vipul D Shah, Rajesh Bahl, and Ashwin Varde producing.
