Will Peepli meet MNIK at the Oscars?
Aamir Khan's Peepli Live is India's official entry for the 83rd Academy Awards, but Shah Rukh Khan's My Name Is Khan (MNIK) has also made its way to the prestigious awards.
Director Karan Johar's take on post-9/11 US through an Asperger's patient, Rizwan Khan, played by Shah Rukh Khan, My Name Is Khan has made it to the reminder list of movies eligible for this year's Academy Awards.
"MNIK started off as a movement and it's heartening to hear that today it's in the broad list of films eligible to be in the running in all categories. I'm honoured that the film has that kind of acceptance level on a global platform," Johar was quoted as saying.
