Umesh Shukla's film inspires pilgrims to donate milk to the poor in Gujarat
Cinema, they say, inspires mankind. Director Umesh Shukla is happy that his Akshay Kumar-starrer, OMG: Oh My God! has managed to bring out the best among pilgrims at the Saraspur temple in Ahmedabad and the Mankeshwar shrine in its neighbourhood
According to locals, the hordes of pilgrims who visited the temples to seek diving blessings during the month of Shravan donated gallons of milk to the needy and poor instead of the traditional practice of bathing the idol in it.
The director feels credit should also go to his co-writer Bhavesh Mandalia for bringing about a change in the mindset of people when it comes to giving offerings to the Lord. Says Shukla, “Several people have contacted me over the social media to tell me about it. It’s a great feeling.”
