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."
