Akshay Kumar’s post for Oh My Gadar

Akshay gave a Bollywood spin to Barbenheimer by calling the clash between OMG 2 and Gadar 2 Oh My Gadar. He then thanked audience members for allowing both films to run smoothly at the box office.

Akshay wrote in the caption, “A big thank you to our audiences for all the love for #OhMyGadar and giving us the greatest week in Indian Film History! Pyaar aur aabhar (Love and gratitude) (folded hands emoji) #Gadar2 in cinemas #OMG2 in cinemas.”

Along with this caption, he posted a video showcasing a montage of the positive reviews and box office numbers of OMG 2, along with rushes of the film. The audio has Akshay singing Udd Jaa Kale Kaava, the popular romantic song from Gadar 2. Akshay’s character actually sings this track in a scene with Pankaj Tripathi from OMG 2.

After a huge 55 crore collection on Independence Day, Gadar 2 had a dip on Wednesday, but still managed to cross the coveted 250 crore mark. The film is expected to cross the 300 crore mark soon as well.

The Akshay Kumar and Pankaj Tripathi-starrer had a major dip on Wednesday after registering a spike in collection on Independence Day. It added 7.75 crore on Wednesday. OMG 2 is now at 80 crore and is likely to cross the 100 crore mark this weekend.

Earlier, when Sunny was asked about the clash of both films, he said, “Jo film zyada acchi hoti hai phir bhi aap usko doosre films ke barabari mein le aatey ho. Jis cheez ki barabari nahin hai, mat karo (Why must people compare a good film with others. Films that have no comparison should not be pitted against each other).”
