Om Shanti Om is a 2007 Indian musical romantic drama thriller film co-written, choreographed and directed by Farah Khan. It stars Shah Rukh Khan and debutant Deepika Padukone in the lead roles while Arjun Rampal, Shreyas Talpade, and Kirron Kher feature in supporting roles. More than forty-two well-known Hindi movie stars appear in the course of the film, including thirty of them (not including the stars of the film) in one song alone. The film is set in the 1970s and 2000s; it pays tribute to, and pokes fun at, the Indian film industry of both these eras.
The film was released in 2,000 prints worldwide making it the largest Indian cinematic release at the time. Om Shanti Om was released on 9 November 2007 to universal acclaim from critics and record-breaking box office collections. It grossed ₹1.50 billion worldwide and thus became the highest-grossing Hindi film at the time of its release.
