Celebrated author Paulo Coelho has said superstar Shah Rukh Khan deserved an Academy Award for his performance in the film My Name is Khan, if Hollywood fraternity was not biased.
The 69-year-old novelist took to Twitter to praise the actor on the seventh anniversary of the Karan Johar-directed film.
The Alchemist author also posted a screenshot from his Facebook page, where he also wrote that the 2008 movie was only the time he had watched any of Shah Rukh’s acts.
Shah Rukh too tweeted saying that it was sad that such films are “still relevant” and was grateful to the cast and crew for giving him such a great film.
Thank u so much. My next journey is to try and meet u in person. Love and health to u. https://t.co/J2hMsBybI6— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) February 12, 2017
