Yami Gautam on OMG 2
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Yami Gautam talked about the success of OMG 2 and its box office clash with Sunny Deol-starrer Gadar 2, which released on the same day.
She had said, "Many have been giving credit to OMG 2 and Gadar 2 for reviving the theatres. Yami says, “You don’t think about these clashes right? Having a clash or not, you cannot predict. I had a gut feeling about OMG 2. I was certain about it. You can never be 100 percent sure but I had a positive feeling about it. It comes from the writer and director, and how they present it. It's such a sensitive subject; how do you make it a family film? That was a challenge to not shy away from. Amit (Rai) handled the writing superbly. When I read the script I was very sure that the story needs to be told exactly from this perspective.”
