Filmmaker Karan Johar celebrated the 12th birthday of his star Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s “My Name is Khan” on Saturday and said the film was “a precious part of his heart”.
The 2012 drama revolved around a Muslim man (Khan) from India with Asperger’s syndrome, who travels a long way across the United States to meet President Barack Obama, after his world collapses due to the September 11 terrorist attacks in the country. Kajol played his on-screen wife.
Released on February 12, 2010, “My Name is Khan” did well at the box office and won critical acclaim.
Taking to Twitter, the 49-year-old director shared some iconic moments from the film, with the song “Noor-E-Khuda” playing in the backdrop.
“A precious piece of my heart turns 12 today, a piece my team and I put our souls into making…only to receive unparalleled love in return from all of you! #12YearsOfMyNameIsKhan @iamsrk @itsKajolD @apoorvamehta18 @DharmaMovies,” Johar wrote.
The film, jointly produced by Johar’s Dharma Productions and Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, was screened as part of the Official Selection of the 60th Berlin International Film Festival in 2010.
