Mumbai, Feb 14 (Calcutta Tube) Bollywood Filmmaker Karan Johar says that he was moved by the support and positive response from audiences regarding his latest film ‘My Name Is Khan’. Johar was in Berlin for the red carpet premiere of the film and headed directly to multiplexes on Sunday after coming back.
‘It’s very heartwarming. A filmmaker’s biggest dream is that his film connects with his audience. I am thrilled, ecstatic and literally folding my hands and saying thank you (to all fans),’ Johar said at Fun Cinemas, Andheri (West) here.
‘I won’t say anything beyond the film. In the film, Rizwan Khan (the protagonist) says, ‘We shall overcome’ and I think we are successful,’ he added.
The film got into trouble when Shiv Sena launched a protest against it after its lead actor Shah Rukh Khan’s pro-Pakistan stance and tried to disrupt the screening in Mumbai and other parts of the country as well.
But Shah Rukh fans gave the thumbs down to the Shiv Sena by thronging cinema halls across India Friday to watch the movie.
