The accomplished actor recently offered insights into his sentiments regarding the movie’s performance at the box office.

Pankaj Tripathi Reflects on “OMG 2’s” Box-Office Triumph

In a recent conversation with The Indian Express, Pankaj Tripathi was queried about his perspective on the remarkable box-office reception of “OMG 2.” He responded, “Box office collections do make me feel good. I understand the importance of numbers. When a film works, the producers benefit, our value increases and we all will benefit. But what baffles me are the arguments which happen on Twitter, that a film has entered 100 crore club or some such crore club. I’m like ye kaun log hai jinhe apne jeevan se zyada film ki kamayi ki chinta hai (Who are these people more concerned about a film’s collection than their lives)?”

Tripathi emphasized that the film’s team naturally holds a vested interest in its box-office performance, given their involvement. However, he encouraged audiences to direct their attention towards the artistic essence of the film, rather than fixating solely on numbers.

Sustained Success of “OMG 2” in Its Second Week

As “OMG 2” strides into its second week, it continues its triumphant run, amassing 3.6 crores at the box office on the second Monday alone. This significant addition elevates its total earnings to approximately 117 crores, inching closer to the coveted 120 crore milestone. Under the direction of Amit Rai, “OMG 2” stands as a spiritual sequel to the 2012 hit “OMG! Oh My God,” starring Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal. Beyond this project, Tripathi is currently engrossed in the filming of the horror comedy “Stree 2.” He is also set to grace the screens in “Fukrey 3” and portray former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the biopic titled “Main Atal Hoon.”
