The final countdown for the release of the two most-awaited
films of the year has begun. Yes, Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om and
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya are heading for the
battlefield this Friday, as both the films are scheduled for
release on the same day. Just two days to go before you witness the
Diwali fireworks burst at the Box Office.
Om Shanti Om has Badshah of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan in
the lead role with stunningly beautiful debutante Deepika Padukone
as his heroine. It also boasts of a special number with more than
30 Bollywood actors sharing screen space with King Khan.
Saawariya is no lesser that Om Shanti Om. It is
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film. Moreover, veteran actor Rishi
Kapoor's son Ranbir Kapoor and actor Anil Kapoor's daughter Sonam
Kapoor are making debut together with this film.
The hype around the films is unbelievable. It is said that
18,000 tickets of OSO has been sold even before advance booking
starts. However, the bad news is that Eros, the distributors of the
film, are still discussing with multiplexes on the share of profit,
thus delaying its advance bookings. On the other hand, advance
bookings of Saawariya has begun and the response is said
to be good.
Whatever maybe the fate of the films at the Box Office, film
buffs are surely going to have gala time this Diwali. Can you ask
for a better treat?
