Karan Johar has never left a stone unturned to woo the international audiences with the grandeur of his star casts and the exotic locations of his films. If observed, his films have been exceptionally successfull in the U.K and the U.S. But this time even the Egyptian audience have been wooed by his recent film ‘My Name Is Khan’ and welcomed it with open arms.
No doubt, Shahrukh has some extra ordinary charm which works well with the international audiences and continues to create magic even after two months after the release of his latest movie. The film which talks about the treatment given to the Muslims after the 9/11 terror attack has created some kind of nostalgia in Egypt which has led to the making of a record of one million pounds in the first four weeks of its release.
According to the popular Egyptian opinion it is an extra ordinary film which is almost like a huge favour on the Muslims as said by the Media Pandit Khalid Mutassir. It was a very brave attempt by KJO to have made such a movie on such a controversial topic.
Karan has tried to get this film as much global exposure as possible and has also taken it to the Cannes film festival. His dear friend SRK and lucky charm Kajol have sure proved to work some magic with this film. The next film to be screened in Egypt will be Kabir Khan’s New York which is co-incidentally on the same subject.
