Om is immediately reincarnated and the story flash forwards to the present day.

Haunted by memories of his past life and his true love, Om attempts to solve the mystery of his death, and also reunite with Shanti, the love of his past life.

Om Shanti Om is said to be inspired by the Hollywood movie, Chances Are, where a man is reincarnated and instantaneously attempts to find the wife from his previous life.

Om Shanti Om has over 30 well known Bollywood stars including Salman Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Kajol, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra, Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan putting in a guest appearance for a special song and dance sequence in the film, a concept recently used by Farah's brother, Sajid Khan in the opening number of his film, Heyy Babyy.

Farah Khan's husband, Shirish Kunder (director of Jaan E Mann) is in charge of Om Shanti om's editing. He was previously involved in the same department for Farah's debut movie, Main Hoon Na.

Om Shanti Om features Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role and introduces Deepika Padukone as his love interest.

The supporting cast includes Arjun Rampal (recently seen in the film Don) and Shreyas Talpade (of Iqbal fame).

A lighted comedy coupled with excellent musical score, this Bollywood entertainer is destined to be a box office money spinner from EROS International this November 2007.

What's more, the distributor will be releasing this film with over 2000 prints worldwide.
