Shah Rukh Khan, who was already expressing his thanks to all the congratulatory messages on social media for My Name Is Khan, was equally thrilled to see Paulo Coelho’s best wishes and in response to the same he posted, “Thank u so much. My next journey is to try and meet u in person. Love and health to u.”
Readers may be aware that My Name Is Khan had Shah Rukh Khan playing the role of an autistic man who sets out on a journey to meet the President to tell him that ‘His name is Khan and he is not a terrorist,’ after the death of his son. The film aimed to break the prejudices towards a particular community and Islamophobia that became rampant after the 9/11 attacks in the US. Talking about the contemporary condition too, according to Shah Rukh Khan, the film continues to retain its relevance.
“It’s kinda sad too that MNIK is still relevant. But thx Karan Ravi Kajol SEL Shibani Niranjan Deepa Jimmy & all cast/crew for a special film,” added Shah Rukh Khan on the micro blogging site.
