Akshay Kumar has donned the form of Lord Shankara in his next film 'OMG 2'. It is worth noting that there was a controversy for months over Mohammad Zeeshan Ayub's character of Lord Shankara in the web series 'Tandav' released on Prime Video last year and some of his dialogues.
This is the second case of an artist becoming Shankar Bhagwan in the Hindi film industry after that character. A long schedule of the film has recently been completed in Mumbai. And, now its next schedule is reported to start with Akshay Kumar. A poster of the film has also been released on social media, in which Akshay is seen disguised as Lord Shankar.

With five films on the way to release and three under development films, Akshay has become the first-line hero to do the most number of films in lead roles these days. Although the results of his last two films 'Bellbottom' and 'Lakshmi' have not been very special, but the filmmakers have full faith in him.
Akshay Kumar's next release is 'Sooryavanshi' which is releasing on Diwali next month. After this, his film 'Prithviraj' will be released on January 21 next year. This is said to be the first historical film of Akshay's career and Yash Raj Films. Then on March 4, Akshay's another film 'Bachchan Pandey' is in the queue. Apart from these, the release dates of 'Raksha Bandhan' on August 11 and 'Ram Setu' on October 24, 2022, have also been announced.
Akshay recently completed his other film 'Mission Cinderella' in London and now he is going to start shooting for the film 'O My God 2'. In the first act of this film too, Akshay played the role of God. Along with the shooting of the second act of the film, which started on Saturday, Akshay has also shared two posters of the film on social media.
