SRK deserved an Oscar for My Name Is Khan: Paulo Coelho

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Shahrukh Khan starrer My Name Is Khan has completed seven years since its release. The film which was directed by Karan Johar received a lot of critical acclaim upon its release.

Upon its seventh anniversary, the veteran writer Paulo Coelho took to Facebook to appreciate the film, and also claimed that had Hollywood not been manipulative, Shah Rukh Khan could probably have won an Oscar for his performance.

“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 the movie was 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.”

Shahrukh Khan humbly thanked the writer and expressing a desire to meet in person.

Earlier, SRK himself had taken to his Twitter feed to commemorate the 7th anniversary of the film, and revealed that he’s saddened to realise that the film still holds relevance.


  1. Ya it is the best movie of srk along with swadesh, veer zara and chak de India….nd for these four films srk deserved national award for best actor but unfortunately didn’t get…..nd same goes for amir lagaan…nd hritik for koi mil gaya nd guzaarish…

      Sab ko srk se jealous hota hai.. mnik jaisa acting abhi tak kisi ne kiya hai kya?? sab ke fan srk se jealous krte hai.. why?? respect his achievements.. i m not talking movie and box office collection.. other achievement just check out..never jealous other achievement..respect his hardwork.. bollywood every actor told srk hardworking..grow up all fans and respect everyone…

  2. see manipulation is also there in Hollywood .
    this man Srk Is away ahead still from Amir Khan who thinks releasing films on Christmas will make him bigger star, he will fall very badly when real test will come , SRK is testing every thing on him , which other big stars dont have guts to doo.{still is under performer is bigger than many star biggest hits }
    Co grates Srk again .

      Nobody stopped SRK from releasing his movies on Christmas.
      We Know SRKs Track on Christmas Dilwale,Don2.
      SRK lost clash against Ranveer & Even Hrithik gave him Tough Competition
      If Raees had released on Christmas then Even 100Cr Would have been Impossible.
      Aamir Made Christmas a special lucrative period for release,He created and has dominated.
      Others tried but they failed.
      Fact is No One Can Dare To Take On Aamir??
      And SRK is Testing Everything??
      Srk himself said ‘I am making Dumb Movies now a days’
      If You think Raone,HNY,Dilwale are Masterpiece then
      No Arguement With You.
      BTW I am really Enjoying
      How SRK fans are giving lame Excuses of Eid & Christmas
      SRK is the only Actor who always afraid to come on NonHoliday.
      Maximum Xmas Release-SRK
      Maximum Diwali Release-SRK
      Maximum Festive Release-SRK

      Haters haters haters haters haters haters haters haters haters haters!!!!!
      Real Madrid F.C wrote about Shah Rukh Khan as well and congratulated him for raees as well! Did he pay them as well? He paid Paul as well? He paid all these people and still the second richest actor in the world! How stupid are you guys! Respect all actors!!
      Especially respect the Khans and Akshay Kumar who have stayed at the top for son long! No actor in the history of Indian cinema has stayed till the top
      Amitabh Bachchan couldn’t sustain his stardom he was over after 20 years but these guys have been there at the top for over 25 years! 👏👏👏🙏🙏🙏

    Just Google it u will find it..

  10. This is most useless article praising a flop retarded movie and star

  11. Roric - the srk hater Reply

    If srk deserves Oscar for my name is khan
    Then akki also deserves for jolly llb as concept of both movie is same

  12. It was a good subject with melodramatic performances my name is Khan needed real ACTORS like irrfan and konka to give it credibility. If oscars lacked credibility dicaprio would have won at least 3 oscars and cruise,depp would have won a couple but neither have won an oscar and dicaprio has won one for the revenant the actor to win most best actor oscar is Daniel day lewis half of you have not even heard of him yet honestly he is a superb genius actor. Jean djuardin was best actor in 2011 and gave a masterclass performance in the artiste the film was silent but he emoted so much with his eyes and facial expressions you were just hooked.

    To win more awards doesn’t mean anyone buy awards.he won last best actor award for MNIK 6 years all idiots, if he could buy awards then he would have 25 best actor awards in 25 years.tell me, why he have only 8 best actor awards. abe retard persons, chehra dekhkar award nai mila hai SRK ko.he win by his hard work.

  29. ye aamir khan or uske fans ki Srk se isliye jalti hai kyuki uska koi signature style nahi hai Srk jesa.Na hi Srk jesa King khan aur King of romance jesa FAM .Balki log tingu bulate hain haha

  30. srk need just one link in Oscar awards so he can buy it just like he buy filmfare awards.leonardo is deserves so many Oscar awards but he couldn’t get it same as so many actors deserves filmfare awards but srk buying them all. Hakla bolne ko tum acting kehte ho lol. Aur my name is Khan main koi acting Nahi thi wo real srk tha. paagal. Srk ko do roll suit hota hai ek pagal aur dusra Gay

    • Whose fault that other actors don’t have money to buy awards?Get a life gay.

    HNY negetive WOM 200CR/179cr..even we consider 150cr..its is hit…if Amir would have been there its not going to be 50cr…and if SRK stariing in THA LAASH it would have been at least avg to semi hit…this is farak of stardom….but even though Amirian yede will dislike this comments bcz they are fools…

    haters give me a logic…

    if SRK can buy anything so from where he got this money…according to your logic his movies didnt collects in box office as much as Amir….so where did he get this money….now you say he is dancing in wedding and endorsing brands….but to that also need stardom otherwise tushar and aftab also invited for brand ambassadors and by your logic dancing in wedding can earn more money than movie…… LOL thats the reason amir have less money than SRK…..

    so in your logic….Sachin to SRk all are making money bcz they endorse brands or go to wedding….

    ek baat kaan khol ke sun lo…Amir sirf star hai….par SRK rule in hearts…kyuki….Shero ka …kya hota hai haters….zamana….suneee
