Bollywood fans, rejoice! Karan Johar’s much-anticipated film My Name is Khan, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, is out in theaters today!
It’s a love story, but it’s a lot more, too. The film addresses disabilities, but “it’s not about a disabled man’s fight against disability,” said Johar in an interview in 2009. “It’s a disabled man’s fight against the disability that exists in the world — terrorism, hatred, fighting.” There’s even someone playing President Barack Obama in the film!
Khan was shot extensively in the United States (even the UCLA campus), and is being released by Fox Searchlight Pictures, and you know it’s gotta be good because they’ve released hits such as The Namesake, Bend it Like Beckham, Water, and the Academy Award winner Slumdog Millionaire.
