Shah Rukh Khan was highlighted by author Paulo Coelho on Twitter for praise following the enormous success of the actor's most recent movie, Pathaan. The Brazilian novelist commented on a video uploaded by the actor thanking his admirers gathered outside his Mumbai home, Mannat. In his opinion, the actor had one of his best performances in the 2010 movie My Name Is Khan. Paulo encouraged his fans to see the movie.
Paulo commented on Twitter about a video Shah Rukh posted of his supporters gathering in front of his Mumbai home. He noted:
King. Legend . Friend. But above all GREAT ACTOR ( for those who don’t know him in the West, I strongly suggest “My name is Khan- and I am not a terrorist”) https://t.co/fka54F1ycc
A fan replied, "Wooww… and what a way to introduce to those who don’t know him." Another commented, "Paulo thank you man you always stand by our king srk lots and lots of love (red heart emojis)."
The author has already given accolades to Shah Rukh for his role in My Name Is Khan. Paulo congratulated Shah Rukh on the 7th anniversary of the movie in 2017 via Twitter. He also posted a screenshot of a Facebook post that read, 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 was the movie 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."
The actor responded to Paulo by saying, "Thank u so much. My next journey is to try and meet u in person. Love and health to u." In My Name Is Khan, which again reunited Shah Rukh with Kajol, the actor played Rizwan, an autistic man who seeks to meet with US President Barack Obama following the murder of his stepson. Being a Muslim in the US exposes him to prejudice, and he works to reassure everyone around him that he is not a terrorist. The movie was written by Shibani Bathija and Niranjan Iyengar. It was directed by Karan Johar.
