Berlin: Om Shanti Om Drives German Fans Crazy

Berlin, Feb 9:
Popular Hindi blockbuster 'Om Shanti Om' starring Shah Rukh Khan created a big sensation among the film enthusiasts at the 58th Berlin International Film Festival, with tickets for all the three screenings already sold out ahead of its German premiere here tonight.
There has been a big run for the tickets for tonight's premiere and two subsequent repeat screenings in the Berlinale special section since the ticket sales for the public was opened three days ago.

No other film at the outset of the 11-day Berlinale has created such a big interest as the Indian entry, festival organisers responsible for ticket sales told PTI.

Tickets for all the three screenings have now been sold out, he said.

Public demands for tonight's German premiere has been so great that even many accredited journalists were denied permission to attend the event, something which rarely happens at the Berlinale, they said.

Berlinale officials said the public interest for Om Shanti Om, directed by Farah Khan, has been amazing because the film enthusiasts are not only interested in watching the film, but also to get a glimpse of Shah Rukh Khan, who is scheduled to answer questions from the audience after the premiere.

Besides attending the premiere, Shah Rukh Khan will also address a press conference at the Berlinale press centre and participate in a panel discussion at the Berlinale Talent Campus.

Om Shanti Om was given a very enthusiastic reception by the media representatives covering the Festival at a press screening held here last night.
