Overseas: ‘O.S.O. has a record start in U.K., U.S.A.

By Bollywood Hungama

OM SHANTI OM has fetched a flying start in the major markets. In U.K., OM SHANTI OM is the second biggest opener ever, after KABHI ALVIDA NAA

KEHNA. O.S.O. has crossed the 3-day total of biggies like VEER-ZAARA [£ 484,993], KAL HO NAA HO [£ 436,790], DEVDAS [£ 466,370], KABHI KHUSHI

KABHIE GHAM [£ 473,355] and DHOOM 2 [£ 415,701]. In the U.S., the film has fetched the biggest ever opening for a Hindi film, garnering $ 1.75 million

in its first 3 days. Incredible!

SAAWARIYA has fared below expectations in U.K. The numbers may seem impressive considering it stars a new pair, but given the fact that it’s made

by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and released during the festive season, it falls short of expectations in U.K. However, the business is impressive in America.

Weekend: November 9 – 11, 2007.
