Rizwan Khan: [eulogy] Sameer Rathod Khan, my son. Weight 56 kilogram, blood group O positive. Sameer loved Xbox and soccer. He loved his soccer shoes so much that he would sleep in them. That was the only bad habit he had.

MNIK Screening
26 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I was able to see the first screening of MNIK. With a lot on Karan Johar and Shahrukh Khan's shoulders, I must say the film exceeds all expectations and My Name Is Khan will deliver internationally.

Shahrukh Khan known for his commercial romantic roles steps outside his boundary with My Name Is Khan and delivers a magnificent performance.

Opposite him you have Kajol who matches Shahrukh Khan step by step. Direction, editing and visuals are all A rate. Not sure who gets credited for the story; Shibani or Karan.

My Name Is Khan should lead Bollywood to international fame. All we need to do now is wait for February 2010.
