My Name is Khan has been penned by Shibani Bathija, scriptwriter of Fanaa (2006), Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna (2006), and Kidnap (2008). Fanaa and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna were blockbusters, while Kidnap was a moderate hit. The dialogues of My Name is Khan have been written by Niranjan Iyengar and the music has been composed by Shankar, Ehsaan, and Loy.

The movie went into production in December 2008 in Los Angeles. By end-Jan 2009, the first schedule of My Name is Khan was completed in Los Angeles. The remaining two schedules will be completed by August 2009, in Mumbai and Los Angeles.

My Name is Khan is expected to be released in December 2009. Before that Shahrukh Khan will be seen in Dulha Mil Gaya with Sushmita Sen, in mid-2009. After he recovers from his shoulder injury, Shahrukh Khan will shoot for Karan Johar’s Kootchie Kootchie Hota Hai, an animated movie based on the blockbuster hit Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, in its 10th year.

    Well this is one of the much awaited movie of SRK written on the same plot as depicted in ‘Khuda ke liye’ and ‘New York’ movie. How a muslim on foreign soil is treated and then how we fights back. Full marks to SRK and Karan for cmoing together yet again.
