In one of the ironies of life, Saawariya – the better movie of this Diwali -has collapsed in its second weekÂ at the U.S. Box office while that crass, crude Shahrukh Khan film Om Shanti Om continues to rule inÂ the U.S.
For the November 16-18Â weekend, Saawariya’sÂ gross collection came in at $150,208, down 72.3% from last week.
Saawariya seems to have been impacted by negative publicity in the media.
In contrast, Om Shanti Om has held up better with an estimated weekend gross of $756,342, down 57.1%.
