The nineties era saw the unbeatable and superhit pairing of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. Both these superstars have done many films together in their career, most of them being declared as superhits. One such film is My Name Is Khan, which was released in the year 2010. On the happy occasion of the film clocking 14 years today, Kajol took to social media and shared an extremely memorable photograph (read ‘still’) from the film. The still featured Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, where she is seen affectionately placing her head on the shoulders of Shah Rukh Khan.
After posting this photograph, Kajol even gave an extremely apt caption for it. She wrote, “Reflecting on the journey of Rizwan and Mandira, and the countless lives they've touched.. Celebrating the enduring power of love and unity..#14yearsofmynameiskhan #mynameiskhan @iamsrk @dharmamovies @karanjohar”.
Looking back, readers may recall that this film made news for many reasons than one. Firstly, this film became the talking point of everyone at that time, because it was being directed by Karan Johar. For the unversed, since Karan Johar was meant and had become totally synonymous with directing films with candyfloss romance, the very news of him directing My Name Is Khan raised many an eyebrow!
My Name Is Khan centred around a Muslim man named Rizwan Khan, which happens to be the name of the character played by Shah Rukh Khan. His character was shown as someone who was suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. Gradually, he falls in love with a Hindu lady Mandira Rathod (played by Kajol) and eventually gets married to her. After a series of unfortunate incidents that rips apart the two lovers, Rizwan sets on a journey to change the perception of the people about his community.
Besides the melodious music composed by Shankar Ehsaan and Loy, the film also boasted of some of the most wonderful songs like ‘Sajda’, ‘Tere Naina’, ‘Noor-E-Khuda’ and others. Besides everything else, the one line that became really famous was a dialogue from the film ‘My name is Khan… and I am not a terrorist”.
