Shah Rukh Khan deserved an Oscar for My Name Is Khan says Paulo Coelho

Shah Rukh Khan should have won an Oscar for his movie My Name Is Khan believes writer Paulo Coelho. The movie tells the story of a Muslim man Rizvan Khan who travels to the USA to meet the American President and tell him that My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist.

Directed by Karan Johar, the movie did good business but now, when the walls are being made by the USA to keep refugees, largely Muslims out of the United States of America, it seems that the timeless quality of the movie has made the world famous writer to say this.

Paulo Coelho congratulated Shah Rukh Khan on the seventh anniversary of making the movie on Twitter and wrote

“My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist” Congratulations @iamsrk for the 7th anniversary of this wonderful movie!

He also said that SRK deserved an Oscar provide the Hollywood was not manipulated. The writer, however, on an earlier occasion, got the year of the release wrong; MNIK came in the year 2010 and not 2008 as he wrote in the comment.

Paulo Coelho shares warm relations with the Bollywood superstar whose Raees did great in India while got banned in Pakistan for showing Islam and Muslims in poor light.

It is sad for Shah Rukh Khan that while he had to fight to keep a Pakistani artist Mahira Khan in the movie in India, the movie itself got banned in the country without any major protests from any Pakistani or the Indian artists.

Jolly LLB 2 also has been banned in Pakistan. The reason ostensibly is that the film touches on the Kashmiri militancy and has India tilt.

Do you believe that Shah Rukh Khan should have won an Oscar for MNIK?
