The official trailer for My Name is Khan has just been released. The film itself is mostly in English, but the Hindi will be subtitled. Just the trailer is un-subtitled.
Directed by Karan Johar, the film is about Rizwan Khan (played by SRK), who suffers from the Asperger syndrome, a form of autism that affects social interaction abilities.
The film is set against the 9/11 terror attacks and its impact on an Indian Muslims living in the United States.
Everything is going Asian these days! So exciting!
This film is put out by Fox Searchlight, the same studio that put out Slumdog Millionaire. Originally, Danny Boyle wanted Shahrukh Khan to play the host of Who Wants to Be A Millionaire (Khan is actual host of show in India) but Khan’s schedule was too hectic and the part ultimately went to Anil Kapoor. See our interview with Danny Boyle for entire story.
This looks great! Maybe it will be an Oscar winner as well.
