Akshay is depicted in the image as a celestial figure with long tresses along with the shadow of a pupil who appears to be in need of guidance. The second poster depicts Lord Shiva rescuing the individual and holding his hand. Paresh Rawal, Mithun Chakraborty, Om Puri, Puja Gupta, Mahesh Manjrekar, Govind Namdeo, and Poonam Jhawer had significant parts in the first instalment. The plot centres around an atheist who questioned the social standards surrounding God worship. After his antique business is destroyed, he decides to sue the gods. When the Lord comes to his rescue, his trust in divinity is restored.
Meanwhile, Kumar is preparing for the November 5, 2021 release of ‘Sooryavanshi’. Along with Bhumi Pednekar, he has a role in Aanand L Rai’s film ‘Raksha Bandhan’. He will also appear in ‘Cinderella’, ‘Prithviraj’, ‘Ram Setu’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’, and ‘Gorkha’.
