Bollywood superstar’s latest flick ‘Om Shanti Om‘ has beaten all the releases on this festive season of Diwali, not only in India.. but abroad also!
Word is out that the Robert Redford directed ‘Lions For Lambs’ starring Tom Cruise has been trounced by the Indian flick, a tribute to 1970s Bollywood films, by a wide margin.
According to Variety, Om Shanti Om took in £8.2m while Saawariya cashed in £6.9m – placing Lions for Lambs at number three with just £4.9m from 45 countries and a whooping 404 prints, compared to just 52 prints of Om Shanti Om.
Bollywood is surely making its presence felt overseas!
Om Shanti Om is based on the idea of incarnation and is director Farah Khan’s tribute to the colourful and vibrant cinemas of the 70s.
The opening was really good. After the first show of the movie, most of the people said that it was Shah Rukh Khan who made the movie a big hit.
Shah Rukh is in a new avatar, going shirtless and displaying his six-pack abs, which are making even bigger headlines than the star himself!
