According to a source, the entertainer that starred Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, is one of the longest running Hindi films in Japan. The company was keen on converting it into a musical. “For the last three years, Om Shanti Om is still running in theatres across Japan. With this new development, it becomes the first film from the Indian film industry to receive such an honour. Farah will be flying to Japan this week, for the opening night of the play, for which she was specially invited as a front row guest,” adds the source.

When contacted, Farah says, “I’m thrilled and honoured that Takarazu has made my most loved film into a musical..proving that our countries may be far apart but our hearts have the same emotions. I hope OSO entertains and fulfills Japanese audiences as much as it has done worldwide.”
