Yes, you read it right. Globally renowned author Paulo Coelho posted openly on his Facebook page and said Bollywood's Superstar Shahrukh Khan truly deserves an Oscar for Karan Johar's film, My Name Is Khan.
"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." Paulo wrote.
It all started when, back in August, Paulo praised SRK's work on Twitter and wrote "My name is Khan (2009) is the best movie I watched this year @karanjohar @iamsrk Congrats for My name is Khan. I wish we could see more of your movies in Europe. I had to wait 6 yrs to watch this!"
In reply to his tweet, SRK tweeted back, "@paulocoelho send me your address sir I will supply you all indian films as they release. We read u as soon as u write...v r blessed. Thanx."
And sweet Shahrukh sent him DVDs of some of his iconic films which includes Chak De India, Swades, Asoka and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna.
No doubt, Shahrukh Khan is a well known personality across the globe. Here are some views of Hollywood celebrities along with Paulo Coelho about Shahrukh Khan.
