Yami Gautam revealed Aditya Dhar’s thoughts on OMG 2.

Yami Gautam opened up about her husband, director Aditya Dhar’s reaction to OMG 2 in an exclusive chat with News18 Showsha.

Yami Gautam has delivered yet another memorable performance with OMG 2. Essaying the role of a defense lawyer, Yami fights against Pankaj Tripathi’s Kanti Sharan Mudgal in a case involving a sexual act. While fans have praised the actress’ performance, Yami told News18 Showsha exclusively that her husband, director Aditya Dhar, was also impressed with the film. Yami said that he was happy for her and OMG 2’s director Amit Rai, who was making his directorial debut with the film.

“(Aditya) did watch the film, he watched it before the release and we watched it together and he was really happy. He said, ‘I’m so happy for you, Yami.’ It’s actually very embarrassing for me to quote him or what he said, it’s always nicer if we all could hear him (laughs). He said, ‘I’m really happy with all your choice of films and the way all of them have been received by the audience — be it OTT or theatrical. (He said) it is a really good film,'” Yami revealed.

The actress added, “Being a director himself, Aditya said, ‘I am so happy for the director. I know what it takes. Especially for a first time filmmaker to make a film and finally release it in the theatres.’ There are so many different kind of challenges that we don’t talk about. So he said, ‘I’m very happy and definitely this film is going to work for the audience.'”

His predictions weren’t wrong. Despite an A certificate and a clash with Gadar 2, OMG 2 has done impressive business at the box office. Trade expert Taran Adarsh on Wednesday revealed that OMG 2 collected Rs 72.27 in its extended weekend. Ask Yami if OMG 2 would have benefitted more at the box office if the film was U/A and Yami agreed that it would have made a difference to the collection.

“Definitely, of course. Especially knowing that the target audience for this film, apart from family, was teenagers, group of students, especially 12+ age group, who are still in their growing years, and at the brink of teenage and they question so many things at that age. If you watch the film, you know that the film targeted them. More than box office, more than numbers, it was the idea. Every film has a target audience, every film is made to target a certain set of audience, a filmmaker always knows that. This was that film that was a cusp of where there was of course family but specifically the messaging the film has, it was keeping the parents and kids in school in mind,” she said.
