Om Shanti Om in Box Office

Om Shanti Om is coming in this Diwali and you know that Diwali is the time when Indians are in festive mode and they go into the cinema hall in large numbers. This year, they have Om Shanti Om of Shah Rukh Khan in the Diwali day. Naturally, many people are expecting this movie to break all the records of 2007. 2007 has not been a great year for Bollywood industry. The producers have seen movie after movie failing in the box office and only two or three movies have done very good business. Actually, I think that the biggest success in box office was Guru and that came into the film screen in Germany. After that no movie could meet the expectations in the box office.

So, now Shah Rukh Khan is eagerly waiting to see how Om Shanti Om does in the box office. It should be noted here that recently, Shah Rukh Khan’s another movie Chak De India did fairly well in the box office despite the fact that it was a sports movie on Women’s Hockey. In Chak De India, there was no famous actress but the movie did well because of Shah Rukh Khan only. In Om Shanti Om, there is no famous actress either. The lead role is played by Deepika Padukone who is a new actress too. So, Shah Rukh Khan will have to pray to God that this movie really becomes a big in the box office.
