Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om continues its record-breaking overseas run, even during the second weekend. After resetting the first weekend Bollywood record in the US, the film moves on to an astonishing $2,892,773 in just ten days and is now certain to dethrone the top grosser Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna's (2006) $3,275,444. Interesting to note that both the movies have one thing in common, Shahrukh Khan.
Moving on to UK, Om Shanti Om is now the top UK grosser of 2007, with $1,997,013. It has moved past the previous record holder, Namastey London's $1,730,000 (approx).
The movie that released with Om Shanti Om, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ranbir, Sonam, Salman (special appearance) and Rani starrer Saawariya is now way behind, mainly due to a heavy fall in collections. Saawariya has so far grossed $805,054 in the US and $554,271 in the UK
