Om Shanti Om is setting new records! The film has almost touched 1 million in U.K. in a span of 10 days, which is incredible. In the U.S., Om Shanti Om is out to cross the biggest grosser, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. Till Sunday night, it had almost reached the totals of Veer-Zaara and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, after having crossed Devdas and Dhoom 2 -- the big grossers here. The combined total from U.K., U.S.A. and Australia is approx. Rs. 20.5 crores in 10 days. Phenomenal! On the other hand, Saawariya has registered a 72% drop in U.S.A. and 70% drop in U.K. in its second weekend. Need we add more?
