Om Shanti Om beats Chak De India at UK Box office

Shah Rukh Khan is all set to beat himself within 4 days. Confused? Well read on then…

The King of Bollywood sweeped past newcomer Ranbir Kapoor within hours on Friday, he then gave Hollywood Oscar winner Tom Cruise a run for his money on Saturday, and if things keep going like this… then this time tomorrow night (Monday) he will have beaten himself. Saawariya was floored first, then Cruise starrer Lions For Lambs faced stiff opposition, and now predictions are that the total UK collections of Chak De India will be surpassed within hours by the super duper success of Om Shanti Om.

Offical UK Box Office takings for the Yash Raj sports flick Chak De India closed in UK on £416,917 (US $867,265 - INR 34,094,355)earlier this year. Current estimates for Farah Khan directed Eros International release Om Shanti Om stand at $400,000. Which means that within hours Om will have crushed Kabir.

Om Shanti Om is also very close to be titled as the Top Bollywood Grosser in the UK for 2007. That title currently belongs to the Akshay Kumar starrer Namastey London. It’s total UK collections are £830,851 (US $1,728,616 - INR 67,956,216). Expectations are that Om Shanti Om will indeed become the UK Number ONE within two weeks
