Yes, you Khan!

My Name is Khan...

No, it’s not. The last time we met your name was...

Oof! No, I was saying that My Name is Khan had its world premiere last night in Abu Dhabi. Did you watch it on Facebook?

You just said Abu Dhabi. Why should I then have gone on Facebook?

Because the premiere ceremony was streamed live on Facebook. Don’t you read the papers? Are you slow or something?!

I suffer from Asperger syndrome.

Hey! That’s the ailment that Shah Rukh Khan in My Name is Khan has! That’s so cool.

Hey, you have progeria and Amitabh Bachchan played a character with your ailment in Paa. So don’t worry. What’s My Name is Khan about?

It’s about a Mumbai boy moving to the US where he falls in love with a girl whom he marries. Trouble starts after 9/11 when, as a Muslim businessman, Rizwan goes kaput and his marriage falls apart. To win her back, our hero travels across America.

Wow! If this movie doesn’t get an Oscar, it’ll just show how anti-Islam America is!

Do say: If Johnny Lever played the hero, would the film have been My Name is Lever.

Don’t say: His name is Bal.
