4.Om Shanti Om V/s Saawariya
On 9th November 2007, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali released ‘Saawariya’, introducing Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor. However, this must have been his biggest mistake of life as he launched it with Shahrukh Khan’s film ‘Om Shanti Om’. However, in front of ‘Om Shanti Om’, the film failed miserably.
