Did You Know?


During a publicity outing, Shah Rukh Khan came to the US but was detained at customs for over an hour. People first thought this was a PR stunt but it was revealed that it was not. The film's producers were furious that their star was treated so shabbily, not unlike Khan's character in the film. See more »


Multiple times during the film, language is used that would not used in a Midwestern American town. One example being the use of the term "bloody" in the style of British English usage by youths while harassing Mandira's son. See more »


Mandira Khan: Sam... Our Khan has managed to achieve, with his love and humanity, what my hatred could never achieve. My anger threw us apart. But today his love has brought us together in a way where we remember you with renewed hope.

You will fall in love with KHAN!!
5 February 2010 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

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 goes...

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 say)

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!
