    Karan Johar will be going global with his movie My Name Is Khan very soon. There had been speculations abound whether Karan would be selling the world rights of the film to either Yash Raj Films or to his new business associate UTV (they have tied up for Qurbaan and Wake Up Sid). But it is now learnt that Karan is tying up with a big international distribution company for the movie. This company is none other than Fox Studios. Apparently, they have already bought Karan’s My Name Is Khan for a whopping Rs 100 Crore.

    Multiple Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire was a Fox product and the aggressive manner by which the studio is known to promote their films worldwide; one is sure My Name Is Khan will definitely be on everyone’s lips the world over, during the time of its release. With its topical theme and world’s most popular actor Shah Rukh Khan in it, we won’t be surprised if the movie shatters box-office records worldwide, apart from generating critical acclaim just like Fox’s Slumdog Millionaire.

    However, Karan Johar states that he is still working that out! My Name Is Khan is releasing either end of January or in February. A month of shoot is still left. Karan’s film is set against the 9-11 terror attacks and its impact on an Indian Muslim living in the US. It is being touted as the most awaited releases of the year. The film also stars Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in the lead after a gap of eight long years.

    I hope and believe this will happen, but I wish the film didn't get compared to Slumdog Millionaire, I liked that film but these two have nothing in common...

    the way I read it is not that the movies are the same, they mean that MINK will win Oscars

    I agree :( It's too long wait. In fact it would have been better this year, because it could have been selected for oscar's for next year. But the wait is torture. And it will be worst for those of us who have to wait for who knows how long after the premiere to actually get to see it... :(
    (Even though I'm hopeful that with Fox being the distributor the film will eventually come to Finland, but if it will come to theaters that will be several months after the international premiere, because it's looking from here "some unknown film by some unknown people in a strange language"... And to tell the truth I'm kind of suspecting it will maybe only release on DVD here. But even that would be better than any other SRK film in the past...)
