The first week results of the 'Diwali' battle are out, and it is
game, set and match to Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om. During
its astonishing seven day record-breaking run in India, the
Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Shreyas Talpade and Arjun Rampal
starrer netted over 40-crores.
Om Shanti Om has broken many individual records,
including that for Bombay. In the process, Om Shanti Om
has set a new first week record in India, surpassing the 35-crores
netted by the Hrithik, Aishwarya and Abhishek starrer, the 2006
blockbuster Dhoom:2 ( in its first week).
While on the other 'Diwali' release, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's
Ranbir, Sonam, Salman (special appearance) and Rani starrer,
Saawariya, the movie also performed creditably, netting
around 20-crores, thanks to its good weekend run.
