Farah Khan’s Om Shanti Om has set a record of sorts as it has registered pre advanced booking of 18, 000 tickets in a chain of theatres in national capital Delhi a couple of days before the advance booking was to start. “Pre advance booking is not a general phenomenon. But corporate bookings for 18000 tickets have been done in Satyam cinemas which are having three properties in Delhi,” Rajneesh Budhraja, Regional Head North India, Eros Multimedia, disclosed to IndiaFM.
So, can one consider this to be the trend for bumper advance booking for Om Shanti Om in the days to come? “The advance booking will start in two days. But from the pre advance booking one can predict how the trend is going to be like,” Rajneesh said.
The Diwali fireworks have started bursting for Om Shanti Om a week in advance. But one wouldn’t have gauged that it will be causing such hysteria. It seems with two biggies in OSO and Saawariya coming together many more records shall tumble.
