Karan Johar has always managed to woo the international audiences with the grandeur of his star casts and the exotic locations of his films. His films have especially done well in the U.K and the U.S. But this time even the Egyptian audience has welcomed his recent film ‘My Name Is Khan’ with open arms.

Shahrukh sure has some charm which works well with the international audiences and continues to create magic with the Egyptians even after two months after the release of his latest movie. The film which talks about the treatment given to the Muslims after the 9/11 terror attack has created some kind of nostalgia in Egypt which has led to the making of a record of one million pounds in the first four weeks of its release.

The film has been distributed by United Motion Pictures and has gathered popularity amongst the public as well as the critics. According to the popular Egyptian opinion it is an extra ordinary film which is almost like a huge favour on the Muslims as said by the Media Pandit Khalid Mutassir. It was a very brave attempt by KJO to have made such a movie on such a controversial topic.

Karan has tried to get this film as much global exposure as possible and has also taken it to the Cannes film festival. His dear friend SRK and lucky charm Kajol have sure proved to work some magic with this film. The next film to be screened in Egypt will be Kabir Khan’s ‘New York’ which is co-incidentally on the same subject.
