About My Name Is Khan Movie:

My Name Is Khan is a social drama film directed by Karan Johar and co-written by Shibani Bathija and Niranjan Iyengar. It stars Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in lead roles

Karan Johar began developing the film in 2007, seeking a departure from his previous romantic films; it is Johar’s first directorial effort where he did not contribute to the screenplay. Johar and Bathija extensively researched autism in preparation for the film, especially Asperger’s syndrome, as well as Islam.

The film was co-produced by Johar’s mother, Hiroo Yash Johar, and Khan’s wife, Gauri Khan, under their respective production companies Dharma Productions and Red Chillies Entertainment. Khan and Kajol’s involvement was confirmed by May 2008, with the remainder of the cast rounded out by January 2009.

Principal photography began in December 2008 and lasted until October 2009, with filming locations including Los Angeles, Mumbai, and San Francisco. The film’s soundtrack was composed by Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy.

My Name Is Khan first premiered in the United Arab Emirates on 10 February 2010 and was theatrically released worldwide two days later by 20th Century Fox. It received widespread critical acclaim for its subject matter, direction, music, screenplay, cinematography, performances (with particular praise directed towards Khan and Kajol) and the social message.

On 7 August 2009, Johar signed a deal for ₹1 billion (equivalent to ₹2.5 billion or US$31 million in 2023) with Fox Searchlight Pictures, who will market and distribute it in worldwide (Fox Searchlight). It covers all rights except music, which has been secured by Sony Music India.

It grossed ₹223 crore (US$48.77 million) worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing Hindi film of 2010 and the second-highest-grossing Indian film of 2010.

It received numerous awards and nominations, including three wins at the 56th Filmfare Awards. It is used as a scholarly case study for its cinematic portrayal of autism and Islamophobia.

The film was released in India on DVD on 21 April 2010, Blu-ray in India, plus a DVD release worldwide followed on 17 August 2010.

In the United Kingdom, it was 2012’s sixth most-watched foreign-language film on television with 210,000 viewers on Channel 4, and the year’s second most-watched Asian film (below the Chinese film Red Cliff).
