Did You Know?
Aamir Bashir was originally offered a role in the movie, but he was denied a visa to the USA. Jimmy Shergill was cast instead.
Rizvan Khan is shown not to like the color yellow, but later on in the film (during the song 'noor-e-khuda') he is seen holding a yellow "repair almost anything" sign.
My name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist.
You will fall in love with KHAN!!
I just returned home after the screening of MNIK and i had a blast! I
just thought i should share my experience with all of you so here it
First things first it ain't a typical bollywood masala flick! It has
India's most famous on-screen couple SRK-Kajol but it is not KKHH or
DDLJ…. Directed by the supremely talented Karan Johar this movie is
an absolute stunner!! In fact everybody(mostly were British) fell in
love with SRK's character Rizwan Khan in the movie! Kajol has given a
wonderful performance in the movie! I wont be surprised if this movie
is nominated for Oscars!
SRK plays Rizwan Khan who suffers from autism or commonly known as
asperger's syndrome who is married to a single mother Kajol.. The movie
deals with effects of 9/11 which shook the world! One man sets out to
see the president of USA and shows wonderfully how the people should be
strong to chuck away their fears.. The main highlights of the movie are
SRK and the climax! Oh what a climax the movie has! You cant control
but smile with lots of tears in eyes seeing the climax!! Once again SRK
shows that he is not only here for comments and bad films(as people
No movie in recent times has given so much of emotional attachment with
the characters of the film!! The movie will become a cult classic for
SRK fans and even those who hate SRK.. I wont spoil anything about the
movie but i would say one thing: Wait for 12th Feb and book the tickets
for the movie as soon as you can! And believe me it will change your
life completely(and don't forget to thank me later! :)! The movie will
break all records and set new trends in film making) For the people in
India i feel lucky to have seen the movie before you but don't be
disappointed! Better late then never!! I repeat whenever you will watch
it your life will change completely!!
This movie deserves a full 10!!
Thanks and Regards!
