Far from the daredevil stunts and action sequences that he is known for, Akshay Kumar’s next flick, OMG (Oh my God!), also produced by him, is a comedy drama about God and man’s faith. The actor opens up about his equation with God and how some moments changed his life for good.

‘My OMG moments’
There are OMG moments every day in our lives. The beauty is in making the most of them. Some of the great moments in my life have been passing exams, never having my nose broken when I took up karate and completing seven Khiladi movies (it will be eight soon). But most importantly, marrying Tina (wife Twinkle Khanna), the woman of my dreams and becoming a father to my son, Aarav. 

‘Why pay to worship?’  
My equation with God is one of respect. Making Oh My God! changed my perception. I think, if God is everywhere, why spend lakhs to visit religious places in the hope that God will acknowledge your devotion more? Why pay to worship him when you can feed helpless children?

‘I pray in my garden’
For me, faith is more important than religion. I visit temples, churches, mosques, gurdwaras, caves and cliffs because at these places, I feel pure. However, my favourite place for worshipping remains my house garden from where I can look at the God’s gracious sea, with my family sleeping peacefully behind me.

‘Never gave up faith’
I’ve never lost faith in God, not even when my father died. That would have been a weakness. What I love about India is that even starving people feed God before feeding themselves. No one gives up faith because of circumstances.
