Brazilian author Paulo Coelho believes superstar Shah Rukh Khan deserved an Academy Award for his performance in the film My Name is Khan, if Hollywood fraternity was not biased!
The 69-year-old novelist took to Twitter to congratulate the actor on the seventh anniversary of the film.
“My Name is Khan and I am not a terrorist.” Congratulations @iamsrk for the 7th anniversary of this wonderful movie!
Paulo Coelho, Author
The Alchemist author also posted a screenshot from his Facebook page, where he wrote that the 2008 movie was the only time he had watched any of Shah Rukh’s acts.
His first (and only) movie that I watched (this year, even if it was released in 2008) was ‘My Name is Khan’ And not only was the movie excellent, but SRK deserved an Oscar if Hollywood was not manipulated. He kindly offered to send the other titles — as you probably guess, it is not easy to find them in Switzerland.
Shah Rukh too tweeted saying that it was sad that such films are “still relevant” and was grateful to the cast and crew for giving him such a great film.
He also thanked Paulo for his words of appreciation.
“So honoured you liked our film this much…” wrote Karan to Paulo.
