Om Shanti Om not only created fireworks but also provoked some anger from the veteran actor Manoj Kumar.
However, Shahrukh Khan tendered his apologies to Manoj Kumar for the sequence in the film. Shahrukh Khan commented that he is ready to remove the scene from the film if the actor desired. Manoj Kumar had threatened legal action for the spoof and was hurt at the way he had been portrayed in the film.
The film also has a comic take on many other actors and filmmakers from 70s, current generation of Bollywood and even a hilarious spoof on South Indian films. Interestingly, Manoj Kumar has not yet seen the film. Shahrukh and Farah together apologized to Manoj and maintained that the spoof was not done to hurt anyone.
