Akshay waiting for Twinkle to see `Oh My God`
Mumbai: Actor Akshay Kumar, who is riding high on the success of his latest production venture `Oh My God`, is eagerly waiting for his wife Twinkle Khanna to watch the film.
"My whole family has seen the play earlier and everybody is a huge fan of this play and that is when I decided to buy the rights and make the film. I am waiting for my wife to watch the film," Akshay told IANS.
"I have just been blessed with a daughter, so she is not yet ready to go to the theatres and watch it. I don`t want to make her watch it on a DVD so I am actually waiting for her to get well soon so that she can watch the film soon," he added. The couple already have a 10-year-old son Aarav.
"Oh My God" is based on Gujarati play "Kanji Virrudh Kanji" and has Paresh Rawal in the lead role. The film is not only winning critical acclaim, but is also minting money at the box office.
Paresh, who has co-produced the film with Akshay says the money is just a bonus, and the intention was to spread the message.
"We didn`t make this film for money. We have made this film so that the right message gets across the audience, so that there is some change in the thinking of the audience. I am glad that this awareness and message has been spread widely. The money that is coming is just a bonus," Paresh said.
Akshay, who has acted in films that have made it to the Rs 100-crore club, says he is happy producing projects that have a message.
"I am very happy with this kind of cinema as a producer. This Rs 100 crore-club will soon change and next year you will be talking about Rs 300 crores, Rs 400 crores this will keep on changing," the 45-year-old said.
