Om Shanti Om Is The First Bollywood Film To Be Adapted Into An International Musical
We often complain that Bollywood ‘gets inspired’ by the Western films a bit too much. But this time around, Bollywood has done a role reversal with Farah Khan’s Om Shanti Om.
Om Shanti Om has released in 2007 almost 10 years ago and was a debut vehicle for now star Deepika Padukone. Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun Rampal and Shreyas Talpade were also a part of the billing. The film has been adapted into a live international musical and it premiered in Japan. This is the first of Bollywood film to do so. This a huge feat for the industry.
Farah Khan, the director of the film was present in Japan for the premiere and she tweeted the following.

To which Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone replied:

The show seemed like a big success and a glitzy affair.
But SRK set the fans into a tizzy when he reacted to the above image by tweeting about a wishful sequel.
