Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - PTI

Brazil­ian nov­el­ist Paulo Coelho, known for his best­seller The Al­chemist, has hailed Bol­ly­wood su­per­star Shah Rukh Khan’s 2010 drama, My Name Is Khan, as the best film he has watched this year.

Coelho, 67, took to Twit­ter to praise the Karan Jo­hardi­rected hit. “My name is Khan is the best movie I watched this year. @karan­jo­har @iamsrk Con­grats for My name is Khan. I wish we could see more of your movies in Europe. I had to wait 6 yrs to watch this! (sic),” he tweeted.

The film, also star­ring Ka­jol, cen­tres around a Mus­lim man from In­dia with Asperger’s Syn­drome (a form of autism), who trav­els to the US to meet Pres­i­dent Barack Obama, af­ter his world falls apart due to 9/11 terror at­tacks in the coun­try. Thank­ing him, Shah Rukh, 49, replied, “@paulo­coelho send me your ad­dress sir I will sup­ply you all In­dian films as they re­lease. We read you as soon as u write... We are blessed. Thanks (sic).”

Jo­har, 43, was also quick to re­vert to the au­thor. “What an hon­our sir!!! Thank you so much!! @iamsrk (sic),” he wrote.
